Description

Rose Canyon starts as a paved bike path with an exit for mountain bikes about 1 mile in on the right. From here the trail is dirt doubletrack running parallel to the railroad tracks until the highway bridge crossing. After the bridge crossing, the trail continues on the right where it becomes a dirt path, then singletrack. At the creek crossing there is a small bridge and from here it becomes San Clemente Canyon.
