This is a longer & gnarlier route. Watch out for Mentally Sensitive and Car Wreck, as they can be challenging.

Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park is located closer to the beach in Orange County, which allows for some cooler days but still super fun sends. There are fire roads towards Top of the World and also in the creek that weave through the trees. Most of the trails are a big technical so be cautious, unless you wish to stay only on fire roads. The climbs are steep and the descents are technical, but everything is doable or easy to walk. It’s also a very popular location for hikers, so be cautious while on the trails. On weekends it can get a bit crowded so if you can squeeze in a ride on a weekday you may not have to worry about avoiding so many people.
Make sure to keep an eye out for features and ways to get around them if you're not ready to hit it this time. Be cautious of other riders, hikers, and horses as this area can be busy on peak days or times. Mountain bikers yield to all other trail users.
