Review: Fun practice trail. Heavy traffic. Nothing with too much physical exertion.

Review: Tunnel 4 is my favorite ride in San Diego. The trails that run east west are boring of course but lots of good trails that branch off to the north

Review: Not very well-marked and lots of trails closed to bikers. I went during a national holiday weekend, so I won't comment on the number of hikers, but can only assume it is heavily trafficked year round. There are, however, some cool side trails. You may want to take a map with you.

Review: For my first time out this trail was really fun. I borrowed one of the hardtails that my old man had stashed in the garage and off we went. We cruised around for a bit dealt with some uphill and then it came to the fun part. There are lots of downhill areas in the park. Some are wide open service roads and then there is the hairy technical stuff diving straight down into the canyon. Overall great ride.

Review: Two parallel trails that are basically rocky dirt roads along a creek bottom for the most part. There are several well marked crossings along the way. There are also many singletracks feeding off the main route that are a delight.
Great ride if you consider there are thousand upon thousand of commuters just a mile away from west trailhead on I-5. Cougar warining signs posted. I saw deer, coyotes and several fighter jets over head from nearby Miramar Air Base.
Trail head is on Sorrento Valley Blvd. about a mile from I-5 not the Map It location shown.

Review: I love this place. There are a number of shoot-off single track trails that most riders are unaware of. This canyon can be linked to Torrey Pines, Black Mountain, Tunnels, or the Lusardi Loop. Visit mtbnomad.com if anyone is interested in a guided ride...
