East Ridge Bell Canyon Loop Trail is a 6.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near San Juan Capistrano, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Horses are also able to use this trail.
Park in the first day use lot you come across on your right side. Cost is $5 to enter the park. The trail map is pretty handy. Plenty of butterflies, grasshoppers, beetles, and lizards on this hike. Right now the yucca blooms are impressive.
Beautiful wildflowers, green hillsides, water in the creek!
These are many trails that loop around within "Caspers Wilderness Park" off the Ortega HWY. Google their website for a map of all these trails (or see link below). All are located within the campground, I think day use access is free. Great hiking, lots of horses and some mountain biking.
