Description Suggest an Edit

The Aliso Creek Riding and Hiking Trail passes through the heart of Mission Viejo from South Laguna to Rancho Santa Margarita along an 18.5-mile corridor. The trail features many parks in Orange County, with plenty of rest areas and kiosks providing information and recounting the area's history. Beginning from the ocean end, the trail goes gradually uphill; it's a fun downhill ride on the way back. Be aware that the trail turns to sand for about 1/4 of a mile after passing under Laguna Hills Drive.

Parking and Trail Access

You can access the trail in many places along its route. Parking is available at Awma Road near Aliso Canyon Road, the ballfields off Woodfield Road, Sycamore Park, El Toro Park, Heroes Park and off El Toro Road near Marguerite Parkway.
