Need to Know

San Clemente Canyon is partially located behind Karl Strauss Brewing Company. Free beers are offered after a ride.

Description

San Clemente Canyon begins with a creek crossing over a small bridge. The trail comes to a highway overpass where it narrows and travels parallel to a wash. After passing under the highway, the trail winds through tall Oaks and thick brush. The main trail continues east to the highway and a turn-around point.

On the return trip, there are 3 trails off of the main trail. Cobb Trail, Kroc Trail, and Biltmore Trail. Each of these trails ascends south through tall Oaks and brush. Each one has a fast, flowy downhill on the return. The main trail takes you north to the paved bike path and parking area.

Somebody enlighten me on how to enter the trail without crossing over the train tracks if parking near the brewery. Jul 9, 2016

 
Parking near the brewery head east toword the pathed bike path, dead end street. Ride the bike path until the dirt trail opening along the train track. RIde the dirt path east until the highway then cross over the bridege, right, south. After crossing over the bridge the trail opens up on the right, west. Crossing the train tracks is prohibited by law, however there are openings to cross at various locations. Jul 9, 2016

 
Thanks for the fast reply. This was our first time there and it took us a while to figure out where to go in. The review is very limited on details. Never did see the Kroc Trail either. Jul 9, 2016
