El Moro (BFI > Moro Ridge) to Buck Gully Loop

This ride begins at the bottom of the Buck Gully trail near the intersection of Poppy and 5th in Newport Beach. Check the signs carefully for valid parking areas nearby. From there you take Poppy down to PCH and over to El Moro. There are several different ways to ride through El Moro, most much easier than this option. But if you’re looking for a seriously steep climb, this is a great option.
