San Clemente Rose CanyonTrail profile
I dropped down into Rose Canyon next to where the railroad tracks cross under Genesee Ave at the beginning of the 4 1/2 mile hike
Just beyond the midpoint of the hike the trail crosses under Hwy 52 close to the railroad tracks. The Mid-Coast Trolley line is under construction here.
Though it wasn't marked very well when I did the hike this portion of the trail isn't technically open. But I did manage to get through.
The hike really ended for me here at Marian Bear Natural Park. It's possible to continue on back to Genesee Ave and I-805 if your up for it. I wasn't able to flag down a bus on Regents Road so walked up to the bus stop on Luna Ave.
