Basically, there are a couple of fire roads with singletrack in between. So you ride round and back and forth, and enjoy as much singletrack as you can

    This is an area, not really a trail. There are XC trails all the way to DH trails that get gnarly. Some of our favorites are Dia (Jump run), Hi'r Line, Lobo, and Car Crash.

    Fun Trails that take a good deal of time to fully explore. Most are not very technical. Mostly clay dirt surface.... which is sloppy and sticky a day or two after a rain... and very unforgiving to fall on in summer months when it turns to hard pan. BEWARE OF TICKS. I GOT LYME DISEASE HERE AND IT SUCKS BEYOND COMPARE. DO A TICK CHECK AFTER RIDES AND WEAR PERMETHRIN/DEET ON SHOES, SOCKS AND CYCLING TIGHTS WHEN POSSIBLE. AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION!....

    Rode here on a rented Santa Cruz (from Bike Religion in Dana Point) after the fire in late June 2017. Place is pretty charred, but the single track is in tact. The fire has compromised some berms in some precarious spots so don't trust all of them - especially ones where drop offs are near. There are some serious drops here, too steep for my skill level and although I didn't ride everything here, I did see a table top jump and and another jump that cleared a small ravine. Careful of rattle snakes - I accidentally rode over a 3-4 footer. The snake lived and I'm just glad I was on a down hill and carrying good speed...

    All in all a great trail network. Offers trails for all abilities while still having that ocean view.

    I learned how to MTB on these trails. Really fun and curvy with a few fast sections, not very technical or rocky. Most of the turns have good banks, and the climbs are steep but short. Great trails for all levels and not usually to busy.

    Just rode this network this morning and found it to be fun. Every trail is very narrow, all the turns have berms (and there are a lot of turns on the shortest of trails), and the even has bridges thrown in for fun. Someone put some thought into this layout and it shows - it is fun. It isn't the most technical or the longest rides you will go on, but I think you will have fun.

    I rode this trail a few years ago and had a blast. Hurt my back and was out for awhile and revisited the trails recently. Nice work by somebody. More trails, more bridges more fun! * Review edited 9/20/2012

    This trail has some very good singletrack, most trails will not be wider than 8in. It is also home to almost every tick and rattlesnake in SoCal. so keep a skilled eye. Bring plenty of water it can be very hot and dry here in the spring and summer.

    As for the rating, its kinda hard to rate. cuz the singletrack is very narrow, not to much elevation, and a few washouts.
