I live in the Pacific Northwest but had to work in socal area for 25 months. I Lived a few miles southeast of the trail and would ride from where I lived and had the trail as part of a loop I enjoyed after work. Had a couple of tricky Creek crossings and a tough climb at the end which could take you two different routes. The street to the trail is a good street with bike lanes to get their and back. Be aware the equestrians use the trail regularly!

I road last week, post flooding. Trail is in good shape and getting better. Nice simple warm up and connects to other steeper challenges. This could be the start of an all day epic.

This is a horse trail, keep your bikes off of it before a horse and rider flattens you or you hurt a horse and it has to be put down. You have NO business on this trail. It is for walking and horses and you need to stay OFF OF IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

TWO trails are reviewed here! the map and some of the reviews to Aliso Canyon refer to a place in SF Valley. Other reviewers are writing about Aliso & Woods Canyon, down in Orange County by Laguna Beach. Those of us in OC often just shorten it to "Aliso," but apparently it's getting confused in this review.

I'll put my review in Aliso Woods, since that's a different route than here.

This canyon is for anybody that wants an adventure or a leasurly ride. There are trails for beginners, mediocre, and expert riders. A lot of people come from different areas of orange county and don't know where to go except the main fire road. If it is youre first time in the aliso canyon, ask people that ride there a lot to get to know other trails.....There are difficult trails for you experts like stairstep, rock-it, lynx, 5 oaks (off limits, but i go anyway), and telonics and more...

Customer Service

The best route for a beginner is just the fire trail which is a 20 min trail from the park to the paved service road. For people that like to climb, go up cholla then top of the world. Down hillers, there are a lot of down hill trails, so what best suits you.


For me, i go down 5 oaks( by water tower) then up cholla, top of world, down to laguana, then home from there.

all the trails r pretty much awsome but when ur hauling a 40+ bike round, its sucks. ummm any trail from top of the world is awsome, u cant go wrong, even on the main fireroad, everything has something but there short, thats bout it.

Customer Service

rockt, umm, telonyx is probly the most techy of them all and funnest but drops u out into the canyon so its sorda a pain. besides that choya is pretty fun for some single track as long as no ones coming up. besides that mathus is the fastest firetrail of them all. besides that the others r full out xc trails. sides linxs. but go ahead and try it from top of the world n ul have a blast.

Aliso Canyon is fun stuff and can be for any level. Alot of the most advanced trails are 3-4 mins. Some arent even on the map because too many people were getting hurt on them. Not really a good downhill place unless you go on my favorite "Stairstep" which is also more technical than most. Overall it has a trail for everyone and takes at around 20 mins to actually find a good trail.

This trail is near where I live so I bike there from home entering off of Renaldi. Its a mild trail but very nice to ride. I am not sure but I think the trail went back futher into the hills at one point however there is a housing development going up and the trail pretty much dead ends there. You can make a left after crossing a creek bed and follow the trail but its really hacked up with sand bags and tarp to control water run off during the storm season. I am not sure what the distance from Rinaldi to the back end is but I would say its not more than a mile 2 at the most so if you are looking for longer ride this is not for you.

If you are a novice like me just getting back into riding then this is the trail for you, not to demanding but enough to work on balance, creek jumping and mild hills with out giving you a heart attack. I hardly ever see anyone there but I go early AM or late in the day after work.

Customer Service

There is a fire road about 20 yards from the main enterence that is gated, I enter there and is a streight shot to the back of the park.

I went to this trail with the hopes of getting a demo bike from Performance Bike which is right off of the 5 on Alicia Pkwy. Unfortunatley that didn't happen so I ended up doing a long trail run instead. The park is very well kept and consists primarily of hard packed dirt and some semi loose sandy soil. There were also some cool slick rock (sand stone) sections that looked to be off limits to bikes. The day I was there I saw a lot of bikers and very few people on foot. The park didn't appear to be that technical, but then again I only got about 5 miles into the park, so I may have missed a lot. Defintley a place for all abilities. I had a good time running there. Would love to check it out on a bike sometime.

Customer Service

Check out dripping cave. Supposidly bandits used it as a hide out after robbing stage coaches back in the day.
