Getting there
The trail actually begins near the top of Moro Ridge (which is actually in Crystal Cove State Park, but after a few hundred yards crosses into LCWP). As you descend south on Moro Ridge, look for the start of the single track on the left, just a few hundred yards from the top.

    This trail is a ton of fun. The top is relatively flat and can be ridden like a pump track. It is bordered by cacti, which will keep your line choice honest. The trail will then turn downhill and let 'er rip. There is one section that is a little off camber and can catch you unawares if your to hard on the gas. This is a ton of fun.

    "Old Emerald Falls Trail" - not to be confused with "Old Emerald Trail"! Both are steep single tracks and both meet up at the bottom, on Emerald Canyon. Old Emerald Falls Trail is flowy single track that also has some rock sections, both bedrock, and loose rock as well as dirt and sand areas. Some of the dirt parts have some nice berms/corners. Unlike Old Emerald Trail, which is up/down, Old Emerald Falls Trail descends into a meadow which it meanders through until it reaches the end.
