MTB riding Rancho San Clemente trail
Rancho San Clemente Ridgeline Trail is a three and a half mile path for pedestrians, bicycles and dogs on leash. It has wide angle views of the coastline from Dana Point Headlands to the San Diego County beaches, along with broad vistas of inland hills, valleys and mountains in three counties. Trail surface is mostly asphalt, with some natural soil portions; it has several steep grades, but the majority is easy, long grades. There are six trail entrances: three are walk-in only and three entrances have parking nearby.
Also great for hiking or running…the hills are pretty demanding
Rancho San Clemente – trail view 3
This was taken during my morning run on the Rancho San Clemente trail…there is a lot of smoke from a nearby wildfires that started at Camp Pendelton on the other side of the ridge. Unfortunately wildfires are now a fact of life in CA… Everyday I thankful for the men and women fighting these fires daily #CalFire
