"The final segment of the Santa Ana River Trail descends a ridge overlooking Morton Canyon. It then follows the dirt Front Line Rd. down to the paved Greenspot Rd beneath Seven Oaks Dam. This is the lowest and hottest section of the trail and is not recommended in the summer. The south side of the ridge was incinerated in the August 2006 Emerald Fire, which was started by illegal and negligent target shooting. This chaparral is growing back rapidly, and this is a good place to watch the process of regeneration." Read more
