Santiago Truck Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A fun, high-elevation drive with great views. Before you go, check with the Cleveland N.F., Trabuca R.D. to make sure gate at the bottom of the Indian Truck Trail is open. You could also drive up Indian Truck Trail to check gate. Only licensed vehicles allowed on road. Forest Adventure Pass required if you stop to recreate. Most of the trip is easy, but closer to the top of the peak it gets steep and rocky. Suitable for stock 4x4 SUVs with high ground clearance."
--Charles A. Wells, Guide to Southern California Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails (FunTreks).
"Located in Santiago Canyon in the Santa Ana Mountains within Cleveland National Forest between the cities of Orange and El Toro. Highlights: Fast, fun combination fireroad and singletrack. Old Camp at the top of the ride is rumored to have been an old Native American hunting camp. Hazards: Rattlesnakes and mountain lions."
