At the end of Wood Canyon keep going straight around the iron gate which spans the road. Then left up the steep fireroad. Cholla is at the top of the ridge to the left. Warning: Cholla is a very popular trail for climbing (both hikers and Mountain Bikers), keep your eyes and ears alert when descending.

02/22/15 First time back after 2 years not being in the saddle. Great little route that let me level-set for all the future work that has to happen to get my mtn biking skills back.
Got back to my car JUST as it started dumping rain!
NOTE: Sundays at this trailhead are horrible for parking, there is a church right there. Instead, park up on the main street at the Laguna Design Center. All of those offices are closed on Sunday and its a quick skip to the bike path below the road and on to the trail.
