    Now that it is pretty much clear should we do some night rides? 2A414E9F-F0AC-4E01-986A-C5B858E9B058.jpeg 6BDFA715-DEE6-4605-A579-40D4D6DBBBC4.jpeg EA1DAD3E-11CA-4FA5-B356-3044CD1C74CE.jpeg D900AD48-04E9-4084-B2E0-39DCD8184B2D.jpeg 6AD519F2-58B8-42E2-A9A2-127124C146B9.jpeg

    Had a nice ride up Maple Springs and up to Santiago Peak (I think I spotted the entrance to @theGrinch 's single track express), then down Bedford, where I spotted either a bobcat or mountain lion dart across the trail. I then made my way down to Nate Harrison grade for this great sunset. I forget how good riding through those orange groves makes me feel, which means that it's always a spectacular surprise.

    I don’t know for sure but I think so. Jeff is like the RMatv hook up guy.

    I've never ridden up to top of Saddleback, but I plan to tomorrow. My plan is to ride to end of Silverado and go up Maple Springs Truck Trail. I'm on a GS.

    I've only hiked to the top before, but I'd sure like some dirt riding experience before attending the DV Noob Rally later this month.

    If anyone is interested, please ping me. Late notice I know. I plan to be at the parking area before the Maple Springs gate at 9:30am.

    Thanks,
    TFC (John)

    It's pretty smooth sailing going from Silverado to the end of Maple Springs, then the last stretch from the end of Maple Springs to Santiago Peak has some loose rocky sections. So be ready for that, or you may want to call it a day when you get to the end of Maple Springs if you feel like you were struggling for any reason before.

    Also, your biggest obstacle may be other motorists. It seems like everyone in OC with a jeep or truck wants to explore up there on the weekends, and a lot of them are idiots. Be wary, and have a good ride!
