Santiago Peak

Saturday, October 8th

Description

This is an easy day run designed to get you out of the house for a day. Bring a lunch and a lawn chair. 

We’ll meet at the Maple Springs Trailhead parking lot at the end of Silverado Canyon at 9:30 AM.  Lunch will be at Santiago Peak.  It’s a nice view of Orange County and sometimes Catalina from up there.

If we are lucky, the Cleveland National Forest gate will be unlocked and after lunch we can run the southern end of the Main Divide trail.  That would put us at Ortega highway at the end of the run.  Otherwise we’ll come back down off the Mountain the way we came.
