Harding Truck Trail, Four Corners, and Modjeska Peak

Jeremy, Tito, and I try and ride MTB at least once or twice a week. This weekend we were feeling a bit cheeky and decided to try and tackle Saddleback Mountain via the Harding Truck Trail. We soon learned that we may have bit off more than we could chew. We ended up climbing for 4 hours to reach the Modjeska Peak. With limited food and 2 of us completely out of water, we decided it was best to head back down. It took us an hour to get back down the mountain. The ride was epic!

The famous California "Marine Layer" was covering the valley when we took off

This was the view most of the day, long and steep climbing

Charred up trees reminded us of the wildfire that ripped through here in 2009

Absolutely breathtaking view from the top

Ready to rip back down the mountain with Rage against the Machine pumping on the ipod
