Description:
Utilizing parts of Back Bay, Mountain To Sea Trail, Peter's Canyon and parts of the Irvine horsey-set trails, you get a pretty good stretch of non-car accessible routing while still enjoying a long ride in OC, something I thought impossible. My only gripe is the thorn bushes in Peter's Canyon throw out these caltrop shaped menaces that I didn't notice had punctured my MTB tire until I was within half a kilometre of home. By then it was a pancake, so I must have been slogging along all that way with ever more and more work. I ended with a 'summit' at Chapman/Santiago Cyn. Road only because I knew I would be reaching my limitations on the way back, but you may want to stretch it out to the Irvine regional park.
