Nice and varied trail. Lots of nice short climbs punctuated by rapid descents. Mix of single track and fireroad and you can really go as long as you want.
Fantastic training route, particularly if you are starting back in after a period of inactivity.
Park at Cox Sports Park and drop right in!
Bruce K. on Arroyo Trabuco Trail
The map is out of date. There is now a well established trail on the west side of the creek that is not shown on the map. Some sections of this trail are single track and other sections are maintenance road (dirt).
I live in this area and hike this trail all the time. There are many things to see, creek is all year, several small waterfalls, beautiful trail with huge oak trees. I have seen several huge Bucks and does with fawns, differant snakes, and kinds of other wildlife including foxes. this is an easy hike for all family members. Beware though some of the trails hvae had severe erosion from all the rain from this last winter storms.
