San Juan Upper Loop via Blue Jay Campground

Please note: This is NOT a shuttle-assisted ride. You start at the top, drop down, climb a hill, go down again and then back up what you started at the end. This cuts about half the climbing of starting from the bottom of the San Juan trail and effectively doubles the climbing of the shuttle-assisted option. You can also add the Viejo Tie into this ride for extra time, distance and climbing.
