Start at the Penasquitos Creek Park parking area and head west. The trail will wind around the creek and end at the highway. There are several creek tributaries you can cross along the trail. At the highway you cross the overpass and return on the South side of the creek heading East.

Besides the main trail, there is singletrack along the creek and outside of the main trail.

Easily a 5-star trail for what it is: GREEN. There are so many trails and single track that branch off this main artery. Excellent ride! Please take care of it and keep it OPEN and Bike-friendly. Dec 9, 2017
A beautiful ride through a nature preserve right in the middle of town. Take a break, and check out San Diego's version of a waterfall. Very kid friendly ride. I've taken 5 year-olds out and back to the waterfall. Not sure about the Blue rating. It's basically flat, mostly fire road Aug 8, 2018
