Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Elsinore Mountains Divide Ride is a 45.85-mile clockwise loop that starts high in the Santa Ana Mountains, descends rapidly into the Elsinore Trough, climbs up onto the Santa Rosa Ecological Plateau, and then continues to climb up into the Elsinore Mountains to return. The recommended direction is clockwise, such that the ride on CA 74 (Ortega Highway) is in the downhill direction. Please note that CA 74 is a two-lane highway with shoulders.

There are plenty of breathtaking views, although one’s eyes tend to be glued to the road. The Lookout Roadhouse is on the left in the opening stages of the descent. This is a popular hangout for motorcyclists. You may also see small packs of motorcyclists on the highway."
