Fifteen miles of asphalt bikeway travel through five south county cities.

The Aliso Creek Regional Riding and Hiking Trail is a well maintained class 1 bikeway and soft recreational trail extending from foothills of Orange County to the boundary of Laguna Beach. The continuous fifteen miles of asphalt bikeway designed for multi-use travels through five south county cities. The soft trail mirrors the asphalt bikeway path on either side of the Aliso Creek traveling from the mountains to the sea. The ten foot wide bikeway was originally designed in the 1970's when the old El Toro Road was abandoned during the construction of a much larger and safer road. The County of Orange added the Aliso Creek Riding and Hiking Trail to the Master Plan of Recreational Trail Opportunities adopted by the Board of Supervisors. The County has employed a full time dedicated team to inspect and maintain the trails and bikeways throughout the County of Orange. The team keeps the trail open year round, responds to service requests, and plans routine repairs to long term maintenance projects.

The bikeway begins at El Toro Rd Santiago Canyon below Ridgeline Drive and parallels
El Toro Road for a short distance then enters the Aliso Creek open Space. The bikeway connects to Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park continuing south passing the El Toro Community Golf Center and passing through the El Toro Community Park where the bikeway crosses the creek utilizing a low-water crossing.
