- Starting on the SA River Trail at PCH provides a nice flat warm-up with a mild to strong tailwind (depending on start time). Once you exit at Lincoln Avenue and head east, the climbing portion begins, albeit gradually, until you reach the intersection of Chapman and Jamboree. Then Santiago Canyon rears up and the next 45-60 minutes is a series of climbs. Avoid this stretch after 10 AM during the summer unless you love the heat. Although the map shows the route on El Toro, it's better to take the creek trail that starts on the left hand shoulder of El Toro just below the intersection of El Toro and Live Oak (Cook's Corner).
