Description

This is an alternating singletrack and doubletrack trail. There is a good .75 mile climb in the middle that will take you to the top of Raptor Ridge trail and give you a great view of the San Pasqual Valley area. From there, the trail drops into the valley floor and into the agricultural area of North County inland.

The trail is in great shape with incredible views. Due to the recent rains, there are lots of plants encroaching on the trail in the low lying areas. 14.6mi — 1h 30m

Watch out for thorns on the trail towards the east end. Both tires flat with dozens of thorns embedded in tires.
