Hike at Caspers Wilderness Park – Bell Canyon + Oso Trail

The hike I am planning is around 6.3 miles with about 700 ft. of elevation gain. It starts at the very end of the paved road, the long gray strip that can be seen on the map.

We will begin at the Bell Canyon Trail head. We will continue onto that and then take it to the Cougar Pass trail. We will go up that and make a left on Oso Trail. Once that ends, we will come back down Bell Canyon Trail until we hit Star Ridge Trail. We will take this to West Ridge Trail and go left. This will take us to a single track trail, Dick Loskorn Trail. This hits Nature Loops Trail and this will take us back to the beginning.

This is a beautiful hike with expansive views. It is a nice and remote hike, so you are really out there in the wilderness.

If you have any questions regarding the park or the trails we will be on, please let me know!

Here is a link to the park map:

The address is: 33401 Ortega Hwy. San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675
