Mountain Biking Peter's Canyon, Orange California

Peter's Canyon Mountain Bike trails

Peters Canyon is a relatively small park. The main trail follows the perimeter of the reservoir and leads down the canyon below the dam. There are a few side trails, but they just loop back to the main trail. One of the highlights of the park is a large eucalyptus grove at the end of the canyon. A single track trail twists through the grove. It's not long, but fun nonetheless.

Although the entire elevation gain is low you still need to keep in mind that the parking is at the top most section of the park. If you ride down the canyon, you will have to come back up.
