Route Directions 

San Juan Trail is considered by many to be one of the top 5 trails in Southern California. It can be done as a shuttle or as a climb half way up (to cocktail rock) and back (see other San Juan routes). A favorite version though is to do the lengthy full climb to the top and really earn the celebrated 11+ mile ride back down. It's a classic!!

Great conditions and lots of riders.
SS. Had a short day at work. Took my bike with me and headed to SJ. Was warm when I rolled out at 9:30. Only 1 other car in the lot. Trail is in good shape, but is getting pretty overgrown. Made good time to Cocktail Rock and continued on up to Blue Jay. Saw a couple of other riders at Viejo Tie. Very toasty topping out at Blue Jay. Fortunately the water at the campground was coming out ice cold. Uneventful run down. Great day on the bike.
Great ride Sunday with Ben,jonna,Dan and Jr.couple of crashes,it wasn't Dan,jonna or I.lol.
Great ride with Mr Owens,Jonna,Ben,and Dino ! One more trip on this fantastic trail with Mark who is moving on to Better places ! Good times with the crew
Great fun with Jr., Jonna, Daniel, and Mark who is heading to Texas shortly. You'll be missed!
