The hike to the KSOX Weather Radar in the Santa Ana Mountains is best done on a cool day. Its around 8.5 miles to the Radar. The non shaded trail winds though Black Star Canyon and then up to the top of the canyon to the Main Divide Road.
The doppler viewed from Beeks Place which is at the 8 mile mark on this trek.
There are two single track short cuts that will save you time and miles on this 16 mile hike. Look for them when your on your way up the trail and take then on the way down. Its a great change from the fire road.

I would like to use your doppler tower photo in a video animation for an editorial piece on cloud satellites. Would you be so kind as to grant me permission via email.
