Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The East Trabuco Creek Trail is a short blacktop bike and ped trail which starts down at Descanso Park, behind the San Juan Capistrano City Hall, at the confluence of San Juan Creek and Trabuco Creek. The trail heads upstream on the eastern bank, undercrosses the Trabuco Bridge on Del Obispo St., passes the new Los Rios Park and ends at a pocket park at the end of Avenida De La Vista, at the southern end of a 0.67 mile long stable district.

From here, should you desire, a well-marked Class III bike route goes up to the Class II bike lanes on Camino Capistrano and thence northward to the city line.

On the opposite bank is the West Trabuco Creek Trail. This is gravel and hard packed dirt and signed for horses, peds and bikes (suggest a mountain bike). It goes further up creek and joins several mountain bike/horse trails. Check it out.

Parking and Trail Access

From I-5 take CA 74 (Ortega Highway) into San Juan Capistrano. Turn left onto Del Obispo St. and follow it westward to Paseo Adelante, just before the Trabuco Creek bridge. Turn right on Adelante and follow it north 0.25 miles to the entrance of Los Rios Park. The trail is across the street and the north end is .2 miles upstream.
