Thumb North Main Divide to Santiago Peak, 11/15

Yes, well my first ride on the new-to-me 450 MXC went well enough until I realized my clutch was not working after riding about 9 miles. Back to the Rancho for a quick bleed, and we're good to go!

Great weaqther and excellent conditions. Can't say the same about my beat to shit Dunlop tires. Must call Blaine at SW Moto on Monday for fresh rubber before Tanksgiving weekend up in Gardnerville.

I also ran into my neighbor, Mark on his 950S, and met up with Robert on his KX-250, now 300.

You other FF's missed a great ride..... and the Heff's at Hells Kitchen!

Cleveland report 11/16

Here is the latest on openings and fires.

Headed up to Santiago Peak yesterday. I checked in with USFS Dispatch and was told there would be smoke visable from a back fire over in Yorba Linda. that is now called the 'complex' fire and jumped the 91 Freeway. It was closed both directions yesterday afternoon.

so far, Bedford, and Skyline are stil open, but not sure for how long. Maple Springs (Silverado) is still closed for remediation and clean up of toxic mine tailings. No. Main Divide is open all the way over to Skyline...so far

And eagle trail, is it part of main divide thats open now, it must be if mains open all the way to skyline...
thanks in advance
and thanks for the info on santiago trail, saved me a trip up modjeska grade

Sorry for the lag.. I was in Death Valley for 4 days playing in the dirt

Bedford Rd - Fire road starts on the east side of the Santa Anas just south of where Weirick Rd crosses the 15 fwy. You access this fire road by exiting at Weirick and then heading south on Knabe Rd (which parallels the 15 on the west side of the 15 fwy). Look for some This fire road should be open to dual sport bikes. This fire road climbs up the east side of the santa anas and intersects with the main divide about a mile north of where maple springs, harding truck trail trail and the main divide meet.

Here's a map that shows all the trails on the north 1/2 of the Santa Anas. All the trails in this map with the exception of maple spring should be open unless they have decided to close things again due to fire danger.



If anyone is curious what the terrain looks like you can check out some of pics in the ride reports below..

So the gate was open? That is awesome. According the Cleveland National forest website they said they were going to try to open maple Springs on Nov 22nd, but I am shocked that they actually hit that date.

Closures

The roads will remain closed to motor vehicles due the rain forcast. The areas are still very fragile due to the fires. They hope to open within 48hrs after the rain.

Cry The latest Poop.....

Dear Volunteers,

In anticipation of the rains that are predicted beginning this evening,
Maple Springs,
North Main Divide Road,
Bedford and
Indian Truck Trails
are being closed to motorized traffic and the gates are being locked today.

Foot, horse and bicycle traffic is OK.

Wildomar will remain open until the rains begin.

It takes quite a few staff to assure there are no visitors on the forest before locking the gates and staffing will be
low over the Thanksgiving holiday. The Acting District Ranger checked several forecasts and all predict rain.

Prevention and law enforcement will be at full staffing over the weekend.

We wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

We are very thankful of all you do for the Trabuco Ranger District.

Debra
