Park near the entrance of Cox Sports Park (aka Ladera Ranch Sports Park). This beginner level ride is about 12 miles round trip with practically no climbing at all – just a gentle incline up to O’Neill Park. Along the way there are many stream crossings to give you an extra challenge and lots of shade to keep you cool. The Arroyo is definitely one of the most beautiful and natural trails in Orange County! And if you plan on riding in the upcoming 2012 Project Rwanda ride (25 mile option), this will give you a taste of what to expect during part of that ride.
