Beginning at Cook's Corner this ride takes you south into Rancho Santa Margarita by way of the twisting Live Oak Rd. From Rancho Santa Margarita you will travel southbound to Dana Point where the Pacific Coast Highway will carry you north all the way to the Santa Ana River trail which is on the border of Newport and Huntington Beach. After about sixteen miles on the river trail you'll encounter a few very challenging climbs in Villa Park before the final leg down Santiago Canyon. Special Thanks to mzeier for sharing this great loop with us.

Somehow, I avoided the rain, save for light drizzle at Crystal Cove. Overall, great ride. I did it in the reverse direction, so as to get the climbing out of the way at the beginning. I much prefer it in the reverse.

Rode half of it in the rain - hitched a ride for the last 10 miles (but rode a detour earlier which added 4 miles). 75 miles total.
