San Juan Creek

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
San Juan Creek just two miles from its mouth.

San Juan Creek is a small river in Orange County, California. It is about 27 miles (43 km) long. Its watershed occupies 133.9 square miles (357 square kilometers). It begins in the Santa Ana Mountains, and ends, after a journey winding west and south, in the Pacific Ocean in Dana Point.

Its biggest tributary, Trabuco Creek or Arroyo Trabuco, is about 21 miles (34 km) long, flowing south from the Santa Ana Mountains into San Juan Creek. Oso Creek is a smaller tributary to Trabuco Creek, but has a lot of water in it the entire year.[1] Many people say they found a dead bear on the Oso Creek.
