Ride to the San Juan Capistrano station and then hop on your bike and ride the bikeway to Dana Point and the festival.
When you disembark at the Coast Highway bus stop adjacent to Doheny State Park you are able to walk along the green barrier fencing (note signage to park entrance) into the park and then across the parking lot to the FREE Festival shuttle stop.
