OC to Idyllwild

Had the day free so I mapped out a route to Idyllwild and back. Checked off a few of the roads listed in the "Moto Roads" section. 225 miles door to door. Here we go:

A couple of shots on Santiago Canyon rd





Then on to Live Oak past Cooks Corner





Then I hit Ortega. Perfect day on Ortega. I think I only saw 2 or 3 cages on my side of the road the entire way.




Took a quick break at the top to grab a water and a power bar. Hells Kitchen is across the street





Back on the road, great views

Still on Ortega, more great views. That's Lake Elsinore at the bottom





These pics were taken from The Lookout. I hear they have great BBQ



The road down there is where I'm heading next



A couple of shots going through the valley before climbing back up towards Idyllwild on the 74

Re: OC to Idyllwild

Took the 74 to the 243 into Idyllwild. SNOW!





Stopped here for lunch. It was great!





Couple shots of town





Now to start heading back down to the desert. BTW, the 243 was a blast to ride. Hardly any traffic.





Snow's gone



Leaving the forest



Here's the road heading down

Re: OC to Idyllwild

Didn't take many more pics after this as there wasn't much to see. I hit the 10 to the 60 to Gillman Springs Road to be able to cut across Allesandro and Van Buren to the 91. I try and avoid the freeway as much as possible. Here is a view of Banning



Took a little break at a spot and hit the dirt for a bit.





That's all I got. Fun ride and I was able to cross a few more new to me roads off my list.

Awesome Paul, hit all those roads multiple times. Usually I keep going down into San Diego County, there's some really nice roads down there.
