The somewhat long but easy-going trek down the Arroyo Trabuco is most adventurous after winter rainy periods, when turbid water dances over a wide, gravelly bed, and there’s no way to avoid a good foot-soaking at each of four fords you encounter along the trail. Be aware, however, that for most county-park trails such as this, there’s usually a “drying-out” period (usually 3 days) during which all visitation is prohibited. You will pass many unmarked and unmapped paths on both sides; stay on the wide main trail, which is marked every mile.
