Overview

Rolling hills and a mix of singletrack and fire road in a tranquil country setting, the rambling 728-acre Barnett Ranch Preserve is located in central San Diego County, in the Ramona Community Planning Area.

Description

From the parking area, head west on Deviney Lane to reach the start of the Valley View Trail. A brief climb reaches the Overlook Trail before the doubletrack drops around a knoll to reach the preserve boundary. Turn around and retrace your way back to Deviney Lane.

Head left to access the Rattlesnake Trail as it descends gently through the prairie. The tread is mostly hard pack with some sandy spots. Near the end, the Oak Loop Trail splits off to the left to access a picnic area while the Rattle Snake Trail continues up a brief rocky climb to again reach the preserve boundary. Head back on the Rattlesnake Trail and return to the parking area.
