Thanks Alicestrong for the solo response, Im not sure if this is enough to justify spending $70 on 2 tires for the bike tho. I do appreciate your suggestion.
Not so... Fully Loop is good, as is Telegraph in Chino Hills but those are better suited for MTB bikes. A little ride I like to do on my rigid is from the Duck Club, Newport Beach, down the San Diego Creek to Back Bay. You access the Duck Club from Campus, park and then get on the trail from there. You most likely could do Wood Canyon/Aliso Woods. Depends specifically what you are looking for - OC does not have "rails to trails" like dirt roads like they have in the east. There are lots of fire road around that although is better for mountin biking can be done with skill, by someone on a hybrid.
Frankly I don't get the hybrid thing. I have bikes for different terrain - a road bike for pavement and mtbikes for trails. Makes more sense. But it is cheaper to buy tires however than a whole bike so your choice.
