Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park is made up of 4,500 acres of coastal canyons, high ridges, and endangered coastal sage scrub. The habitat also includes oak woodlands, sycamore-shaded canyons, riparian (or stream bank) areas, and the very rare southern maritime chaparral ecosystem. This very special wilderness park also has incredible archeological sites and fascinating caves.

One of the most popular places to visit in the park is Dripping Cave. Also known as Robbers Cave, this cave was originally used by the Native American residents as temporary shelter, and more recently by the notorious Juan Flores gang as a hideout from which to hijack stagecoaches. Aliso and Wood Canyons holds over 30 miles of trails, and is also home to some of the most popular mountain biking trails in South Orange County.
