 This is the flowiest singletrack around Ladera Ranch. One of my favorite trails by far!

 Why would you want to climb this l? Uphill is the way to go on this trail. Sure you could climb it, but with the other single tracks in the area that all lead to the same spot, this one is typically used for hauling butt downhill. If you do climb it, please don’t be wearing earbuds and blasting your jams. Surely someone will be bearing down on you Smile

 Keep it simple. Keep it downhill. Climb the boring stuff, descend the fun stuff. It’s within OC Parks jurisdiction, so no eBikes are permitted.
