El Moro Canyon Mountain Bike Map - Plus Aliso & Woods Canyon
The riding here offers incredible diversity, with technical single-track trails interspersed with mellow fire roads. The scenery includes beautiful native grasslands and coastal scrub that give way to expansive views of the ocean.
The one drawback to these riches is that the parks, particularly Aliso & Wood Canyons, can draw huge crowds on weekends. Please be careful and respect all users. Please note also that the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park is open only on weekends.
|The Laguna Beach area is just one of the huge variety of mountain biking spots that Orange County has to offer. Discover more great rides.
