Family Friendly: Easy access and a wide, easy trail.
As far as easy and serene rides go, Serrano Creek Trail is not as good as Arroyo Trabuco Trail
, but it is good for conditioning, cardio, or to use as a connection into/out of Whiting Ranch.
The trail has some mildly scenic points and uses several tunnels and underpasses on its course. Mostly it parallels the back of neighborhoods, an office park, and even a small farm.
