The Trail to Main Divide & Saddle Back Mountain

Pictures from our 3/22/08 attempt to hike to the top, we almost made it.  Click on photos for an enlarged view.
On the last part of the trail to Holy Jim there is a sign pointing one way to the waterfall and the other way to Main Divide.  This trail will lead you to Saddleback Mountain, also known as Santiago Peak and Modjeska Peak.  Santiago Peak is the highest mountain in Orange County.  There are cell phone satelite towers on both peaks which you may have noticed from the city.

Printable trail map of the entire trail system in Trabuco District of Cleveland National Forest (including Main Divide and Holy Jim trails) can be found on the US Forest Website,
