Holy Jim to Santiago Peak

This ride begins at the bottom of the Holy Jim trail which is accessible only by trucks and other vehicles with high clearance and sturdy tires. The road can be very rutted out and full of potholes during the winter and numerous water crossings may be impassible. A Forest Adventure Pass is required to park here. Parking in the main area is very limited, so you may have to park along the dirt road up to a half mile back.

From Live Oak Canyon Road to the parking area is about 6 miles on the dirt.
