32 miles, 5,500 ft. of ascent and 100% singletrack! This San Juan - Chiquito combo packs a real punch. Starting from the San Juan parking lot climb most of San Juan Trail to the top of Chiquito Trail. Down Chiquito and at the bottom do the 2 mile San Juan Loop Trail. Next go back up Chiquito. Then, down San Juan Trail to the original parking lot. This is one of the top 10 most technical rides in OC, so be prepared.

01/02/12 32 miles of 100% single track is excessive. Chiquito Trail makes San Juan look like a walk in the park. When the sun set I was still in Chiquito, so I had to ride San Juan in the night. Fortunately I always have the lights on the bike. Had 2 crashes and 2 OTBs.
03/04/11 Good day in the hills with Eric. Met up with Tom and he joined us for the trip up Chiquito on his new steed. My jammed thumb still hurt going down SJ but I didn't really notice it much on Chiquito, go figure. Good times with Jay and Eric at Santora's when we finished.
