    Ride recommendations?

    Hello,
    I am going to be in Orange County for the next 2 weeks. I am looking at getting in some 2 hour mtb rides while there.
    Currently living in CO so any ride is going to be fun. Plenty of extra oxygen.
    I have family around Laguna Beach, Irvine and Costa Mesa.
    I always see riders out near El Toro and Saddleback by the tollroad. Are there any maps of rides up in Santiago Canyon area?
    How are the trails around Laguna Beach close to the 73? I have seen cars with racks but never any riders.

    TIA for any trail recommendations.

    Anything around Laguna Beach should be an enjoyable ride. Weather has been great lately down here in Socal. If you had time, I would recommend Carbon Canyon if you are looking for endurance rides..

    Here is the link to most parks in the south OC area, including Santiago Oaks.

    Orange County, California - Parks & Trails

    Aside from Santiago, I would also suggest Aliso & Wood Canyon, Laguna Coast (which includes El Moro and Crystal Cove) and Whiting Ranch.

    If you have time, there are also some Nation Forest trails that are worthwhile: San Juan Trail, Santiago Truck Trail (different from Santiago Oaks) and Holy Jim.
