Description

The lower trailhead is in Hot Spring Canyon 3/4 mile past the San Juan Fire Station. The upper trailhead is at Blue Jay Campground 4 miles north of the Ortega Highway on Long Canyon Road.

Entering the trail at the east end adjacent to the Blue Jay Campground. The trail climbs a very steep set of stacked switchbacks from the floor of Hot Springs Canyon. It then traverses briefly before steeply ascending a ridge toward Sugarloaf Mountain. Large boulders, chaparral, brush, and nice views. The trail first intersects the Viejo Tie Trail and then junctions with the Chiquito Trail before a steep climb and then continues to the end at the North Main Divide Road, just south of Blue Jay Campground. This trail is very popular with mountain bikers.
