O'Neill Park has probably one of the best beginner trails I've seen. The Tijeras Creek/Arroyo Trabuco loop is a 13-mile loop that has a couple of moderate climbs combined with lots of easy singletrack and fireroad. The best part is that the trail feels amazingly remote for being right in the middle of suburbia.
The park trails are also easily linked to pretty much every other trail system in South Orange County with connectors that will get you to the Cleveland NF, Whiting, Aliso, Caspers, El Moro and even San Clemente.
