Anyone know if you can still ride Santiago from Holy Jim or Live Oak?  I know Maple Springs is closed but isn't there another place to enter towards the end of Live Oak by the bridge?

negative...

holy jim/live oak is open, but it terminates at holy jim...it's *possible* to make it up, but not the best/easiest way

currently the open road is the north main divide off of ortega highway...sorta sucks because maple springs was the closest dirt riding by far...once my YZ250 as the hardware for sprocket/rotors put on, and I get a battery for all the lighting, I was going to start exploring the irvine business district off of bake parkway to see if I can make a dual sport loop that uses pavement to connect all the dirt roads

Main divide question: 

I'm putting the knobbies on my DR tomorrow.  Once that's done I want to ride the "main divide" road off Ortega.  From the map it looks like a make a right just past hells kitchen, but I can't tell how quickly the road turns to dirt; do you know?

Thanks,
Motorcycles motorcycles motorcycles

whoa...wait

if you turn right off of ortega highway - you end up on a paved road...for about 45 mins. It actually never goes unpaved...once you get to the bottom, you can turn into a dirt parking lot that is called Wildomar OHV - here you have hills and trails through the woods...



if you want to head up to Santiago peak, turn left off of ortega

I just drove it in the truck - this is your next best (close) riding. It is sort of like maple springs, in that it is a fire road with some more knarly terrain...but it is significantly shorter...it's about 30 mins driving in a truck, so probably only 20 mins end to end on the bike. There are a few side roads you can pull off and fool around a bit, but at the end of one fork is the trail head to the holy jim hiking trail, and at the end of the other side is a dead end. That's it...there isn't anything legal (or even much that's illegal) that you can cut through and have fun with. Regardless, once the days gtow longer, I will likely be riding here every other Saturday or Sunday evening because it's close to work.

Gear bag is packed...gonna try out some knee guards tomorrow...need to get some 2 stroke mix, food, and charge the gopro!
