Saddleback Mountain Night Run May 2nd

Since the OC Maple Springs gate is currently closed, there are (2) alternatives. Ortega Hwy N. Main Divide or Corona Bedford Canyon Rd. I have shown all going up through Corona unless you would lke to go the Ortega Route. I can update if you like so you know how many people to expect.

We will try to meet at 7:30 and definately head up the trail by 8:00. 15 fwy s. exit at Weirick Rd turn right. Make an immediate left on Knabe Rd. run along the fwy for 1/4 mile and we will be on the right.


Please bring provisions, Water, Snacks, Jackets, Flashlights as it will be at night.

People from the IE will meet off of Weirick Rd @ Bedford Canyon Rd. at 7:30pm. We will then head up to Santiago peak by 8pm.

People from OC can either meet at Corona or Ortega Hwy at 7:30pm and head up to Santiago peak.

We can all meet at the peak then take a run to Beeks Cabin then back to the Main Divide and out to Ortega or out through Corona if all have the time. We will be using Channel 4 for anyone with a CB.

Meeting Spot IE Route

I am in- but will pick entrance based on Friday traffic. Betting OC- 91W to the toll road is typically quicker on a Friday.

Dude it's cakewalk for any Hemi-powered Jeep on 37's!... time & distance can vary depending on what route we take & where we exit. You can zig zag around the OC mtns for hours

Being it's the "oc" mountains I didn't think I'd be much more than a mall crawlin session at south coast plaza.

I was wondering if it's gonna be like a quick 30min ordeal? Or can I bring an ice chest a blanket and some romantic music?

Someone said hunting? Can you shoot up there?!

There is seasonal hunting. I remember in the early 70's brining down a White Tail buck out of there. I will never forget the tick I found on my neck the next day! It will be more like 3-4 hours or more depends on who wants to stay and how much we want to run.

3 hours to go across the divide to the 74? Only if you don't stop and you haul ass! Allow 4 hours. I wish I could go. I am normally available Friday nights. However, my daughter's talent show starts at 7pm May 2nd. I don't think I have wheeled with any of you. And now your in my backyard.
So bummed.

I'll add all of you on the run as soon as the moderator allows me to edit my original post.
Or am I just missing something on how to edit the original post more than once

I hunt cleveland national forest all the time and have gone up main divide during deer season almost every year. big deer but steep terrain and not very fun when you have to pull one out. you can hunt during season but in cleveland national forest there is no "target" shooting or recreational shooting. there are some places you could stop and shoot at but being that you are on top of the mountains its not really the safest place to be shooting rounds off as who knows where the rounds will end up falling.

when i have run main divide from the 74 to maple springs or vice versa it takes around 4 hours

Bump for any more takers on this run!!

We will try our best to make it there around 7pm but realistically speaking I would say more like 7:30pm since we have to wait on a few that come out of work at 6pm & also taking traffic in consideration.

This should turnout to be a great run

No worries. We will all meet at the peak by the cell towers. We can then take a run to Beeks Cabin. There's a hill climb and some little offshoots in that direction.

I am going to have to bail.
My father-in law just let us know he is coming into town Friday. Can't complain since he is here to finalize my sub design- just wish it was a different weekend.
Have fun!

It's all fire roads, nothing crazy at all. The road from the corona side at Indian truck trail off the 15 shouldn't be too far from Ontario probably 30-45 min. As for specific directions one of the guys coming in that way would be better. I've only come out from that way a couple times and not sure on the specific directions

Like Dooz85 said it's all fire roads and easy trail. there are some offshoot bypasses that are fun.
It's about 30-40 minutes from Ontario.

Directions:
15 south exit Weirick Rd. Turn right and make a left at the light (Knabe Rd). Knabe Road runs along the freeway heading south. Bedford is about 1/4 mile down on your right hand side.

I wait there until 7:15 then head up to the peak to meet everyone coming from the OC side.

No love from the IE??? If Sinisterphoto doesn't go I will be headed up by myself....
