Skyline to Santiago Peak

Average Rating:    (4.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

Stay on Skyline which will turn into Main divide truck trail. You'll pass Eagle road, Bedford rd. and maple springs before you get to Modjeska peak--but it ain't over yet. You'll be able to see Santiago peak which is just a few miles further. Once you get to the top and head back down, I like to come out at Bedford cyn. which drops you out at I15 freeway/Weireck road. Go left and under the freeway, you'll end up at 7-Oaks store/deli. Here you can sit down and eat/drink(Beer/Wine) and call to have someone pick you up and take you back to your vehicle. If not, just take main divide back down to Skyline.I suggest at LEAST a Mule (100 oz)+ I usually bring 2 large water bottlesw/cages and several energy bars to be safe.This one is for those of you who can hang, because it's a burner!

Summary:
I ride here at least once/twice a week. This trail is AWESOME! Great view of the ocean, downtown L.A. and a whole lot more. If you ride here make sure to bring lots of water/ food. Skyline starts off with a 4 mile climb to Echo pt. Then ends at the doppler another 2 miles away. Once you are past the doppler there are a few hairy climbs on the way to ap parking lot (known as Four Corners) at the top of Bedford. But past there the trail is farly mild to the peak. Once at the peak you do have the option of turning around, or you can go down Holy Jim/ ITT. This will let you out at Deleo Reigonal Park. You can just follow a road along the 15 that will let you out at the same deli you would come to if you decided to defend Bedford.

Summary:
This has always been a trail that I've wanted to ride just to say that I had been up it. It is one of those trails that you have to be in a certain mood to ride. Its not exciting but the aerobic workout is great and the view from the top is awesome. It's pretty much all fire road with very little shade.

Recommended Route:
We started at the end of skyline drive and rode up skyline to the divide, went right and up to the radio towers. we then turned around and rode up to the golf ball thing and then took skyline back down.

Summary:
This is just FYI... The "rock & mortar ruins" at the top are the remains of "Beeks Place". An old hunting cabin that used to have a pool, detached garage, outhouse and guest house along with beautiful landscaping. I did some research and found some old photos. It was also used temporarily as a Forest Service fire lookout. The steel towers are still in place. The "huge golfball" is the Santa Ana Doppler Radar site designed to provide low-level detection of severe weather approaching the metro L.A. area. Please be careful and mindful of Beeks Place when looking around. 12 years ago when I started riding, Beeks Place was still pretty much intact. Over the years careless mountain bikers and folks visiting in their off-road vehicles have torn it to shreds. What a shame. I live in Colorado now but get to visit my old stomping grounds fairly often. It's a fantastic place with a rich history. Take some time and research the little things and you'll be delighted to find the history behind that section of the Cleveland Nat'l Forest.
