This was an imptromptu run I was asked to put together at the 7/6 club meeting.  The run begins approx  miles from Polly's Pies in Yorba Linda.
This should be an easy scenic run in the southern half of the SBNF, relatively unexplored by our club.
Bring a lunch and drinks, your cameras and sun block.
Trail Boss,
Jim Arbogast
This is the initail info we had on the run.
This is the information from Trail Boss Jim Arbogast:
Here's the scoop I received from Dan & Roy of the HJC regarding the route I mentioned or a scenic run for us on 7/30. Lets hear some feedack on this.
From Dan:
The trail that your referring to is 4S21, Indian Truck Trail. It is easy to find, just take Hwy 74 to Bee Canyon Road, turn left and it is up the trail a ways, on the left. It comes out on Hwy 243 at Indian Lookout. Turn left for banning pass.
Thomas Mountian via Rouse Ridge , behind Cranston Ranger Station, is a good run also, scenic. Cranston is just before Bee Canyon Road on Hwy 74, it ends at Lake Hemet.
From Roy:
The 4S21 is our adopt-a-trail. Be sure an take the left fork when you get on top of the ridge, it leads to an overlook that is a great lunch stop.
It is a challenge in the snow, come up and join us in the winter
