San Juan Trail
After approximately 4.5 miles and over 1 hour of relentless climbing you reach a big rock formation. This is an excellent place to take a rest and/or turn around if you are short on time. From here on the ride eases up and starts to roller coaster through rocky formations. At about 5.5 miles you will reach a fork in the trail. Although both trails will get you to the same place, we'll describe the route to the right. . At this point the trail becomes rockier and ruttier with trees and poison oak growing onto the trail. After about 9 miles you will pass the Chiquito trail on the right and then come to another road crossing the trail. Go straight past this road. You will travel through a wooded area up to Blue Jay Camp. You will return the same way. The trip downhill is a blast as you fly over rocks and past switchbacks all while looking 50 feet down a cliff. Be careful though! Many people are injured on this trail each year and due to the remoteness of the trail you would need to be air-lifted out which can be quite time consuming and costly. This trail is recommended for experienced riders only.
