Silverado Motorway Professional Reviews and Guides

"This hike on the “motorway” (a footpath) takes you from
upper Silverado Canyon to a ridgetop view of the Pacific
Ocean. Though the incline is never great, it is a steady
climb up the canyon wall. The views into Silverado Canyon
toward Old Saddleback and westward become grander the
higher you climb."

"Silverado Canyon was known by the early Hispanic settlers as Canada de la Madera. The tress in the valley and on the mountain above were cut to form the structural elements of Mission San Juan Capistrano and other early California buildings."
