    Cleveland National Forest (Trabuco District)

Very rocky and technical single track. Pretty much a difficult hiking trail that people ride down. Unless you are a trials pro you will have to walk a few spots. Poison Oak too.

Access Info

Trail drops off to the right of The Main Divide if you are heading up to Santiago Peak from Four Corners.

 LHJ - MD - Joplin would make more sense. Park at The Path.
