El Moro / Buck Gully Loop via I Think I Can

This route starts near 5th and Poppy in Newport Beach. From there, head south on PCH a few blocks to Pelican Point Drive. The bike path running parallel to PCH begins there. When you get to the Crystal Cove area, head up the driveway and continue south. You’ll need to get into the left-turn lane when you get to the entrance of Crystal Cove State Park (El Moro). Or you can wait for somebody exiting El Moro to trip the light and cross more safely. There are no cross walks at that intersection and the speed limit in that stretch of road is 55 MPH. Use extreme caution crossing over PCH!
