nice mostly wooded single track with some moderate technical rock gardens. This trail can get very overgrown, with lots of poison oak just off the trail, so plan accordingly. also some optional rock jumps here and there.

Access Info

From blue jay camp ground: The Chiquita split off of upper san juan. The turn around point is the waterfall. You can continue on the more technical lower chiquita down to the ortega, or just climb back up what you just came down.

      Very overgrown, recommend long sleeves and eye protection. Still fun but could've been awesome. If I lived here I would happily maintain this trail.

      Extremely overgrown right now with a few downed trees. Passable, but will have to get off the bike in a few areas due to the overgrowth
