Turn left on Lake Riverside Dr. and pass through the security gate. Note that there are two entrances signed Lake Riverside Estates on the left side of Hwy 371. You want the second entrance which is on flat land at the bottom of the valley, NOT the first entrance you see as you crest the hill. Follow Lake Riverside Dr. to the stop sign at Forest Springs.

Another exciting and beautiful run over Cahuilla Mountain, with optional camping and partying at PPI's Country Estate near the town of Anza, Riverside County.
Friday evening: We will share some music on Friday night, if we can find anyone to make some. PPIs caterwaulling must be drowned out by coyotes or all others who can help, or there will be trouble. You are on your own to bring food and beverages for Friday night.
The Saturday trails: We will car shuttle several miles to the start. Turkeys will start at the cars and return to drive them back. Turkey trail is five miles of good trail with considerable climbing. Eagles will start at the cars and finish at PPIs house. Eagles will go almost ten miles with half of it rough and steep. If extra challenge is desired, Super-Eagles can run the trail from B to A. Tough trail dogs are allowed, leash required by regulation. The eagle trail is rocky and difficult in sections.
YOU MUST CARRY SUFFICIENT WATER. Pay attention to the weather forecast and be prepared should the weather on the mountain turn cold or hot! You will be running in an isolated area at up to 5,600 foot elevation. Wear bright colored clothing or hat, as deer hunting season is underway.
Folks will be staying over Friday and Saturday nights as guests of PPI (Kevin Montgomery). You may set up a tent or park a camper on the 2.7-acre lot, or throw a sleeping bag on the floor of the house. It may be quite chilly at night. Bring warm clothes. Dogs are OK, but be aware of coyote activity in the area. This is a residential neighborhood, so keep the noise down.
The usual after-trail lunch and brew will be provided with run fee. If you are staying Saturday night, join in communal food and beer for $15, including a continental breakfast on Sunday morning.
