Need to Know
Between Hollister and Beyer, the path goes through what looks like a nursery. This is the correct path.
This trail makes for a great workout. It's mostly wide, with a short section of singletrack. Expect some gravel, packed dirt, and very few areas that become muddy if it has recently rained. There are a few bridges, ponds, and lots of wildlife (especially birds). The path is well-shaded.
Most roadways can be crossed safely thanks to underpasses, with the exception of Hollister Street. The trail can be picked up at the parking area off the end of Saturn Blvd, behind Home Depot, or in the middle, at the Ranger Station on Beyer Boulevard.
There are several side trails that can be explored with sections of singletrack. At the time of this writing, the trails are exceptionally well-kept, and the trail serves as a great, mostly flat workout. The trail can be ridden in both directions. Cars can be left either at the Swiss Park staging area, at the Home Depot parking lot or in the middle, at the staging area on Beyer Boulevard.
On the east end of the trail there is a connector that links this trail with the Lower Otay Reservoir.
This trail goes near the Mattress Firm Amphitheater and crosses Otay Valley Road. It's a dirt road that takes the rider right under the big 125 Expressway bridge. From here, Wiley Road, mostly gravel, brings the biker to a steep climb towards the lower reservoir.
After a couple hundred feet hill climb the trail ends on Weste Road, where the Lower Otay singletracks can be picked up.
