Description

The Holy Jim Trail leads from Trabuco Creek Road to North Main Divide Road, rising a little more than 2,300 feet over 5.2 miles.

To reach the trailhead on Trabuco Creek Road, off road or 4 wheel drive vehicles are recommended.

The trail heads north from Trabuco Creek Road on the canyon road for about 0.5 miles before turning into a trail. The trail follows the creek, crossing it several times. At about 1.4 miles there is a junction, take a left to continue up the west side of the canyon via switchbacks. Around 3.5 miles the trail begins to wind through more trees and there is less low level brush. At 5.2 miles the trail reaches North Main Divide Road.
