DescriptionCaspers Wilderness Park is an 8,000 acre protected wilderness preserve nestled among the river terraces and sandstone canyons of the western coastal Santa Ana Mountains. The park's many fertile valleys are overtly complemented by specimen groves of native Coastal Live Oak and magnificent stands of California Sycamore. These areas are further accentuated by seasonal wildflower displays and running streams. Wildlife is abundant and can be readily viewed from any of the parks numerous trails.

Most frequented trails are Bell Canyon, Oso, and San Juan Creek - all of which would be described as "horse trails." For an alternative terrain and single-track check out Juaneno trail which parallels San Juan Creek Trail. All trails are rolling up and down, no terribly aggressive climbs/descents.
