Description

A long steady climb to the Main Divide on the south side of the Santa Ana mountains heading towards Santiago Peak. This is about a 7-mile climb, which is the reason for the intermediate rating.

The trail has some steeper sections and a few flatter sections, some sandy areas, and some rocky areas. Around 4 miles into the climb, the scenery changes to pine trees and becomes more forest-like. The rest of the ride is shady for the most part, depending on the time of day.

In terms of traffic, the trail seems to be more of a light use, we only saw a handful of other people out there. Views of Catalina, the beach, Lake Mathews, as well as many other areas abound during the ride. Street parking os available at the trailhead behind the development.
