“A sun-exposed, steep dirt road to the highest point in the trail system, then easy at the top.”— Dave Gregg
The first one is Buena Vista Trail - a short connector dirt road and the second split is a tiny short-cut to a later point of the Buena Vista Trail. I know, confusing. Just take the second right if you want to go downhill on Schabarum Trail to the bottom of Schabarum Park.
Stay left on Purple Sage after the two right turns and the road passes through rolling terrain below the radio tower. On clear days the views south over Orange County are really nice. The road ends at another dirt road, Schabarum Trail.
