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.

Due to rail road construction crossing over the rail road tracks is not possible. You'll need to park on the other side of the tracks.
