The goal of this hike, looping up and over the Main Divide, is to reach the summit of Modjeska Peak—the lower, north summit of Old Saddleback. If you omit the out-and-back leg to the peak itself, however, you shorten the trip by 2.5 miles. Either way, this is an all-day trek on foot. During the clear, crisp weather characteristic of certain periods from November through March (and assuming you won’t be sharing the roads with any vehicles), this hike can be among the most rewarding and peaceful in Southern California.

I love this hike. The only drawback is that when the forest gate is open, you have to be mindful of many 4x4's and dirtbikes.. They aren't always looking for hikers. Today, I saw a bobcat, tarantula, fox, and a rattler.
