This is just one section of the much longer Arroyo Trabuco trail system. It is basically the transition from the lower groomed fire road to a more proper trail that is mostly double track. It features a few water crossings that tend to change from season to season based on the severity of the previous winter. None are too difficult but the larger river rocks may give beginners some trouble. Those few rocks and a steep intro to the first crossing are the only reasons to rate this intermediate. Also, this is a place to avoid during wet weather, as you are riding in a literal flood zone.

Access Info

You are mostly going to get to this by traveling through via the adjacent Arroyo Trabuco Trails, which feature many start and stop locations. A popular way to get here is to park at the Rancho Santa Margarita Water Works parking lot off Antonio Parkway & Oso Parkway, and then take the Water Works trail down to the Arroyo Trabuco.
