    Peters Canyon I - Orange

    The first time a buddy took me mountain biking, it was at Peter’s Canyon.  It is truly one of the best places to get a taste of the sport because it has a little bit of everything.  There are nice, scenic trails to spin through.  It has both small and steep climbs, but nothing extensive.  There are a few fast descents, rolling ridges, and the entire loop is approximately 6 miles.  To this day, whenever I introduce someone new to the sport, Peters Canyon is the choice trail.  However, riders of all levels will enjoy this trail because you can blast your way through it, climb “big red” without bonking out, or add nearby Santiago Oaks if you want to extend your ride.  One disclosure about Peter’s Canyon is that it is extremely popular among hikers, runners, and bikers so be careful as you traverse your way around this loop.

    Peters Canyon II- Orange

    Peters Canyon 2 is a more robust version of Peters Canyon 1 because of the additional climbing. This loop includes the grueling and steep climb up Big Red, but thankfully it’s short and quick. Continue on through the East Ridge and use your momentum as you make your way though the rolling ridge. Descend the singletrack and head back to your car. It ‘s a short loop, but always fun to ride.

    Santiago Oaks I- Orange

    One of the things that I love about our sport is that you can customize the ride loop to your own abilities or perhaps to choose different scenery. We have been riding Santiago Oaks for several years, primarily for the descent down The Chutes. However, there are plenty of other options and trails that can add some variety to your ride. For this particular loop, we chose to make our way up via Bobcat Meadow trail and descend through Yucca Ridge, and back up to the Chutes for our traditional descent. The ride on Yucca ridge is fast and exhilarating, but by no means technical.

    Santiago Oaks III - Orange

    This particular loop starts from the eastern part of the park and begins by following Santiago Creek trail alongside some neighborhoods. After about a mile, you will begin an ascent via Oak trail all the way to the towers and enter the singletrack that takes you towards the Chutes. Instead of the Chutes though, you will descend Deer Trail, which comes up in less than 1/2 mile and circles back up to Bahram ridge. Your next descent will be on Mountain Goat, which will put you back on Santiago Creek. Although a lot of us ride Santiago Oaks specifically for the Chutes, this loop gives you some climbing and downhill variety through other trails. Nevertheless, it still offers a great workout, beautiful scenery, and a fun descent.
