A dirt doubletrack through Crafton Hills Open Space.

Description

Take this dirt doubletrack up and over the Crafton Hills as it accesses a number of trails in the area. The high point of this one is at the top of Zanja Peak (3,533') with terrific 360° views. You'll feel the climb as it continues steadily for over four miles with only a brief descent section after 1.0 mile. From the summit, continue along the ridgeline as it bends to the right (southeast) towards Yucaipa Regional Park.
