Expect some decent climbing on this route. The first five miles are on a fairly flat dirt road, Trabuco Creek. The singletrack ascent up Holy Jim is breathtaking and challenging with hairpins and slightly technical sections. Upon making a right on the Main Divide fire road expect an undulating 7 mile fire road journey to Trabuco (majority of it being uphill). Trabuco's singletrack is one of the best around - Enjoy!
11/11/16 I haven't been here in 2 1/2 years. I forgot how awesome Holy Jim is. Today I was in one of my worst days regarding energy. Riding once a week is not enough for me for keeping a decent riding shape.
08/09/15 Good training ride for the BPC crew, who took their time to do it. We had 18 in our group and then split up when the slower guys wanted to keep a mellower pace. Great day out for a ride- I love this route!
