Visiting from Santa Cruz with a Cross Bike I went to Singletracks.com to find what the local Oceanside trails had to offer. This was a nice payout. I rode in from the coast 6 miles to get to the College Ave. entrance.
I did not find many posted map stations so I basically just started riding and found easy to spot fire roads. They'd pitch up / down now and then, and that was OK.
But then I started to find the single track stuff and that was awesome. Very tight twisting bermed turns, creek crossings, occasional rocky sectors.
All challenging on a cross bike. I'd love to come back with the enduro rig and rail some stuff that I was line-picking my way down and just bomb it.
I found my way out by the lake itself and then did my 6 miles back to the shore.
