I am in Murrieta and hit the Saddleback mountain range quite often. Several ways to get up to the Peak. Indian truck trail and Bedford Rd. Both are about 3 miles apart. You can also go in from Orange County and Ortega Hwy. Skyline is a pain as usally the gate is locked now that the construction is going on.

Let me know when you want to go wheelin. There is a nice spot right here in Murrieta with days of trails. easy, medium and nasty.

PM me when you want to go.

yep, a few of my buddies have gotten keys before. You didn't end up getting one did you?

But that was early summer.
Getting a key for Skyline has been on the agenda since I bought the Jeep but I keep putting off the drive into Riverside.


No key yet?
I live near corona and I go up to skyline all the time!
I'll pick up a key Monday if more people are interested in checking it out!

02sporttj Last time I took that trail it was open. They have fenced off the large hill area which included a pond farther in, just at the turnoff. That may have been due to fire potential.

02sporttj Since I'm in Corona, I've run Skyline a lot. Lately, the forest service, on motorcycles, are out quite a bit. If you get caught off the fire road they can site you and will if they are in the mood. They are pushing to keep everyone only using the fire roads, although there are great hill climbing trails just off the road that now look like possible fire roads (that excuse didn't fly with the FS guy that saw me). They are now fencing areas to keep us out.

JeepHerz Hi IE'rs-
There are a couple people that haven't voted and are attending- but it looks like we'll be in Riverside.
Chime in if you'd like to attend on the 11th.

Reche Canyon has a few decent quick trails. Nothing spectacular at all. Some of them are really steep and rutted and I wouldn't even think of attempting them. I have seen a few people try, most fail. I had a friend that lived in Reche back in the day so I know the area sort of well. The trail to the mines is pretty easy. All but two of the mines are flooded and the open ones are cool to check out but nothing like Big Horn in wrightwood. Recently the bee hives were placed back in the area so if your tops down and your running with two teen girls and an 8 year old girl, as I was, expect screams when the inside of jeep becomes bee infested.
I thought of driving on Reche Canyon and seeing if I notice any trails with no signs sometime, but I'll probably stay away from it then lol.

That was my first 'off pavement' adventure when I had about 100 miles on my Jeep. I still want to do that one again sometime because my wife got freaked out in a steep area and made me turn around and head back.

I'm real close to Reche Canyon too. I've been meaning to check it out. Not quite sure where to enter though.
I'll go downtown and see about getting a key. I'm across from the plaza so its not far. I guess I could suck up a hundred bucks IF the trail is actually worth it... PICS ANYONE?

JeepHerz FYI: I do hike this trail almost every weekend. I've only ever seen the gate closed (with someone on the wrong side) once. I don't count the guy with the motorcyle who had to lift it over. I don't think you'd have to wait more than a half hour before someone comes along with a key.
I plan on picking up a key- I'll post when I do. I live in Corona so I want the convenience. Nice for those days when I sleep in and lose precious Jeep time. Now that I can hike and Jeep...sweet!

Corona is about the same distance as Cleghorn (and a few others) to me. I'd be interested in checking it out though if someone gets the key.
