July 24, ’11 – Update Construction at the La Paz/ I-5 freeway underpass. Use caution, merge early to/from Cabot and LaPaz.
This route follows the railroad and Oso Creek along the historic alignment of US 101. The original highway was ripped out when the I-5 freeway, and later, a sewage treatment plant were built. But by using the stairs at the Aliso Viejo Metrolink Station and the service road over Oso Creek, bicyclists can still enjoy the lowest at-grade route between inland Orange County and Doheny Beach.
