    Trail Suggestions - with camping

    Hey SoCal Crew,

    We are heading down to SoCal from Santa Cruz for some "work" and need some trail suggestions. We are good riders, not pro, but we can hang.... Think all xc to all mountain style riding. We'll have an RV with us so a cool spot to camp would be primo... Any suggestions?

    We'll be near the Orange / Santa Ana area as well as Murrietta.... Then heading up to Simi Valley / Santa Barbara.

    Any help would be apprecitaed.

    Try O'Neill Park down in South OC. $15 per night with 100+ miles of trails available from the CG.

    I would second the hurkey creek part, But you do not need to pay the CG fee. There is plenty of National forest to camp on where you do not have to pay, come to think of it I think there is a yellow post site on the north road up to Thomas mt. Less then a half mile in. From there you have close access to most of great trails. but you probably should stay away from this area any ways trails are sandy and I think the weather is going to be getting pretty shitty up here
