Ride the ridge between El Moro and Emerald Canyons down to the ocean.

Overview

Dogs: No Dogs

Description

From Bommer Ridge Rd (or the Missing Link singletrack) take the fireroad along the ridge. Pretty easy going (if a little sandy in places) some good opportunity to get up some speed along here - mostly a sweet downhill breeze.

This trail is harder than easy/green. Due to a fairly steep climb, consider it easy/intermediate.

Going downhill (most riders use the top half of Moro Ridge to climb, so if you go downhill please yield right-of-way), over the first mile or more, there will be two campsites on the right before eventually reaching an intersection with "I Think I Can" (aka: E. Cut Across). To stay on Moro Ridge, continue straight and the wide, dirt road descends steeply, all the way to PCH near the ocean. Along the way, stop to enjoy some of the most beautiful ocean views in all of Orange County.
