Anderson Truck Trail out and back, or shuttle it to the top. Very technical and fast. Pack your trash out.

    This trail is at the top of my list. The climb to the top is exhausting but worth it. I had a grin from ear to ear all the way back to my truck. I drove from San Diego out there. It took about 45 min. I am not from Cali so it was sketchy to me parking under the bridge. There was one truck out there but by the time I returned there were more vehicles. Great views and there is something out there for everyone.

    Extremely fun but not easy at all! Bring a lot of water and have fun. You have to park under the bridge and bike up the hill, you will find the trail on your left! The view is amazing and worthy. I recommend sports glasses, gloves, long sleeve and snacks. It's a long trail and have a hard hill! Have fun!!!!!

    Great trail, take GPS or topographical map. Branches off in a lot of places and some trails lead to private property. Very fun and technical trail. Had some heavy rains recently and the trail is washed out in some places.

    Fun, very face paced, and very technical. Not for begginers. You can park at the bottom and ride up or California style it and get a ride to the top. From the top there are several trails to branch off on all with great jumps, and all lead back to the truck trail. Take first aid kit, patch kit, and water. Watch for hikers coming up as well as some bikes. Awesome views. We ride this usually once a week if can.
