Socal - Orange County - San Clemente NickNames: #RanchoSanClemente
5 fwy to Ave Pico, Head east to La Platta, Left on La Platta till the dead end at the Dog Park or Skate park.
The trail heads (many different ways to go) start behind the dog park on the fire road.
There are several miles of single track mixed in. Most trails end at Chritianitos/Camp Pendalton entrance. From there pick an up hill and head home.
The park service officially named some of the trails recently in an attempt “legitimize” some of these bootleg trails. The new trail names are typical of what you would expect from a government agency,, Native American Indian names…..what a crock, as if the Indians went up and down the sides of these hills, switch backs, wood plank bridges and all.
While I won’t name trails others have worked hard to make, I wish the trails were named by the guys that put in the effort. My ridden buddies and I have our own names for the trails ……..Ammo Can, Rick’s, Jeff’s, G-OUT, Switch Back, Glitter Gulch, Sink-Hole, Cow tank, Short side, Long side, Cross-over, Hole- shot, Bone Yard and BATMAN. All of the trails mentioned are single track and there are more trails yet to be finished let alone named.
Hats off to TWTF and anyone who helps develop this small area.
Now go ride!!!!
