Indian Truck Trail & Santiago Canyon Rd
If you are relying on your GPS to get you to the start you WILL be disappointed.
The following directions will get you to the start IF you follow them:
The trail head is located approximately 1.3 miles from the intersection of Indian Truck Trail and US15 (seven miles North of Lake Elsinore). Upon leaving the interstate head west. Take the first right onto Campbell Ranch Road. At the next intersection turn left onto Mayhew Canyon and in another .3 miles turn left onto Santiago Canyon. Follow Santiago .4 miles through a subdivision until arriving at a narrow dirt road on the right. There is a sign (sometimes) identifying it as access to the Cleveland National Forest. This is the Indian Truck Trail. Turn onto the road and look for places to park on the right hand side only. There is a Korean Religious Retreat Center located about a half mile up the road. DO NOT PARK THERE! A Forest Adventure Pass is required ($5 a day $30 a year) everywhere else.
The start line is about 300 yards from the forest entrance. Unfortunately, the start area has been used as a dump in the past, but like most lazy jerks, the miscreants didn’t venture far from the entrance.
For those unfamiliar with the area, Indian Truck is one off-ramp south of Temescal Canyon and Tom’s Farm – an excellent place to eat, relax, or just stroll around the grounds. Running attire is acceptable! Glen Ivy Spa is another great attraction where one can be pampered (for a price) like royalty. The warm sulfur and mud baths are great on aching bones. Not to confused with Glenn Eden (naturist resort) where you can also relax as long as you take off the running attire and anything else you might be wearing… bring Sun Block.
