I characterize it as a classic singletrack tour of SoCal. I've mapped half (southern section) of it, from Hemet to Palm Desert. (Already needs updating to reflect lifted closures and new options.) The other half will include Berdoo Canyon to J-tree to Pioneertown to Wildhorse and SART to Redlands. Unlike many bikepacking routes, it has no noteworthy start or finish (well, Uncle Howie's is special). It's all about the goods en route. Highlights include: Idyllwild town and trails Ramona Trail Sawmill Trail Palm Canyon Epic Joshua Tree NP Pioneertown Wildhorse Trail Santa Ana River Trail and a bunch of FR and unimproved roads connecting them I rode the mapped part solo in four days awhile back and had a blast doing it. A lightly-loaded bike was no problem whatsoever.

One hardy rider here may join for some, so he says (I believe him; he's a badass). I'm guessing about eight days on the bike for the whole thing. California, IMO, is glaringly absent of established bikepacking routes, especially considering the climate. The Stagecoach 400 is mildly interesting, but I'm not a racer and I love ST. So I made my own route. Adding in more of ANF would be beneficial, but for now this is what it is.
