    Falls Fire

    Just saw this on the news. Hope it's not on top of any riding areas?

    My mom is up there and it is mostly in the Decker Canyon/ south Main Divide area heading down to Lake Elsinore. so mostly on the San Mateo wilderness side. There are several private ranches up in there.

    It probably affects the top of South/North Main Divide a bit. There was a trail up by El Cariso fire station that is likely burned over, and probably some of the DH trails coming off Ortega. Fire burned right down the highway hillside.

    Somebody on Dirttreaders posted this pic, saying it shows the extent of the fire as of this morning.

    I overlaid it on my SJT tracks in Google Earth and came up with this. Looks like it's burning right up to the Candy Store on Hwy 74 (where Chiquito hits the highway).

    Key:
    Red: San Juan Trail
    Orange: Old SJT
    Yellow: Chiquito
    Purple: Viejas Tie
    Light Blue: access roads to upper/lower trailheads
    Light Yellow: Hwy 74 (Ortega Hwy)

    The straight line cutting through the middle is the Orange/Riverside county line.
