This is a great loop on two of the best trails in the Santa Ana Mountains. Head up Trabuco Canyon on the Trabuco Trail to Main Divide then drop down San Juan Trail. Exit SJT and take the San Juan Creek Trail to Casper's Wilderness Park and then take the Bell View Trail back to the start.

Lots of exposed roots. A good portion of the trail has been eroded by the rain, causing deep channels. Majority of the trail is pretty badly overgrown...wear long sleeve jersey and leg guards.
