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.
