There's a reason the locals refer to Main Divide as the "Pain Divide." The relentless ups and downs on the rutted loose fireroad make for a tough day on the bike. This section going from West to East is one of the toughest in the Santa Ana's.

 I would not recommend this trail to anyone. As you can see from my pictures we had to be air lifted out. This trail is a lot of up hill and exhausting. It is not fun, and the maps are misleading. Fatalities have occurred out here due to dehydration and exhaustion. We are lucky to be alive. There was not a single soul biking that day and I doubt anyone does this trail either. This is meant for trucks and dirt bikes. Take my word and please be safe by not coming here.
