Perform loops at both Aliso Woods and El Moro Backcountry by descending the challenging Stair Steps trail & passing through the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. WARNING: Stair Steps, the trail that links Aliso Woods to Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, is quite steep and very technical. The same can be said for Rattlesnake singletrack which comes after a ridgeline singletrack traverse via Fenceline Trail in the El Moro backcountry.

12/04/11 Great ride except for all the pumping. Flatted between Mathis and Stairsteps, patched the tube and continued on only to find I had another slow leak and was down to 10 psi by Bommer. Ended up stopping 3 more times to fill up, and 29er tires take a lot of air. Made it back without having to change the tube, now I can find the slow leak and plug it.
