Trail Description
About this trail
Lots of climbing and switchbacks. About half of the trail is in the shade, and half in the sun. There are also a good amount of hikers on this trail. A little ways into the ride you should come to a sign that says Main Divide Road and Falls, you can take either one, but I would recomend taking Main Divide. You can take this trail all the way to Santiago Peak where you can see nearly all of Orange County and Lake Elsinore. You can also hook up with other trails from the peak like Cold Water, Main Divide, Modjeska, Horsethief and Indian Truck Trail.

Review: This is a great trail - one of my favorites in OC! It has it all - switchbacks, loose scrabble, vegetation tunnels, wooded shade, mine tailings... fast and challenging. Only drawback are the hiking crowd on the way up.

Review: My favorite trail in OC. A beautiful climb that starts in trees and ascends through many switchbacks. Alternating between amazing canopies and open sun areas, this climb is breathtaking in more than one way. Follow it up with Joplin, one of the best downhills in OC!

Review: This is a great trail although since they fixed the road it gets pretty crowded with hikers on the weekends. Upper HJ is definitely more technical while Lower HJ is a blast. LHJ is probably the easiest way to get to Main Divide on the south side of the peak and the Holy Jim Trabuco Loop is one of the best in the Santa Anas.

Review: This is one great single track - one of the best in the OC! From the parking lot it starts steep immediately with a bunch of switchbacks then flows through tunnels of vegitation and then gets a bit rocky and technically toward the top in places. Go up and back for an absolute ripfest or make a loop with Main Divide then down either West Horsethief or Trabuco. This is one of the best in the Santa Anas no doubt!
