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
