Trail shared by Phil Reyes

A peaceful, meandering creek-bed trail.

Phil Reyes

Features -none-

Description

This is an easy and beautiful trail following Trabuco Creek, if you want something a little easier. Some parts of the trail are doubletrack and some are singletrack. You'll traverse varying types of terrain including meadows, forests, and wet/dry, rocky creek beds. There are several points where the trail intersects the creek and if there is water in it (normally winter/spring), you may get your feet a little wet.

While most of the trail is easy, there is one section of the trail near Santa Margarita Parkway that gets mildly difficult with small and medium-sized rocks. It only lasts for a bit so just watch your footing on this section.

A lot of this trail is annoying to run on because of the sand and rocks. Not much shade, best in winter. The trails in the nearby hills are a lot more interesting and scenic. Jul 16, 2018
