Mountain Biking Big Laguna Trail

This is fun, fast, easy singletrack in a beautiful setting. The trail makes a short climb in the beginning through a pine forest and then comes through and rides just along side a huge meadow. During the wet months there is a natural lake though much of the year it is a big meadow with cows in the middle and wildflowers. After a couple miles there is a spur trail to the right which crosses directly through the meadow and you can go eitherleft or right after crossing. If you go left you will come around to another small pond and a good spot for lunch. Go right and it will edge the meadow on the opposite side. Either way, after exploring, go back the way you came across the meadow and go right to continue on the Big Laguna Trail. Stay on the main trail and it will go through another meadow and through some cattle gates. Please close the gates after you pass through. it will go back in the forest and then the only real climb up to a dirt road which crosses the trail. Cross the dirt road and continue to a very fun downhill which will take you back to the paved road. Turn left and follow the road about a mile back to your car.

Getting there
from San Diego, take I-8 east past Alpine and take the sunrise highway exit and go left. Take this road for a while and park at the penny pines trailhead parking area. This is also the trailhead for the famous Noble canyon trail. On the south side of the road, take the clear trail for a very short while until it goes left and take that trail. If you go right or just continue it will go to noble canyon.
