This out and back hike will cover 27 miles and include a 5900 feet of elevation gain.

Santiago Peak is the southern mountain of Orange formation. It is the highest and most prominent peak of both the Santa Ana Mountains and Orange County, and also marks a border point with Riverside County. The top of it is covered with many microwave and telecommunication antennas. It is named for Santiago Creek, which begins on its southwestern flank.

Modjeska Peak is the northern mountain of Orange County's Saddleback formation. It is the second highest peak of the Santa Ana Mountains, and is in the Cleveland National Forest.

The peak is named for Shakespearean actress Helena Modjeska, who lived in its shadow near the end of her life.

I consider this an advanced hike but one that offers varied terrain and some great views along the way.
