Afoot & Afield: Orange County
by Jerry Schad and David Money Harris (Wilderness Press)
Both the beginning part on Big Bend Trail and the ending part on Laguna Ridge Trail will test the mettle of any hiker, due to a combination of steepness and roughness. Although mountain bikes are technically allowed on the route, much of that effort would go into slinging the bike over one’s shoulder and slipsliding down the steepest grades. You might as well walk!
