Need to Know

The center of the park can get surprisingly hot, even on average days. Also, it's quite isolated and cell phone reception is poor/non-existent. When riding here, make sure to bring all parts and tools necessary to extricate yourself from common bike malfunctions (extra tube, tire patch, pump, etc).

Description

This trail forms the eastern side of the "main loop" in Rancho San Vicente/Calero Park. The trail connects the parking lot at the north end of the park to the Cottle Trail/Serpentine Loop Trail at the center of the park.

The trail is about 5 miles long and presents around 500 feet of climbs. The rate of ascent is very mild, without steep grades of any kind. It's safe to say that the climb is so gentle that it's even hard to notice it most of the time. There's a simple yet nice lookout (called Lisa's Lookout) with a few benches and a somewhat interesting view along the way for those who might need a break or just want to stop and enjoy the scenery.

Riders can head south (and connect back to the parking lot via Cottle Trail), making a counter-clockwise loop, or vice-versa. Be aware of the very sharp turn connecting the Lisa Killough and Cottle Trail (at the southern tip of Lisa Killough). Also, make sure not to enter the Serpentine Loop Trail, which is not bike legal at this time.
