    This place has lots of potential but rain and horses and the lack of high volume riding result in really loose rocky fireroads chopped up by horses. A great workout but not very high on the fun factor based in the trails I went on. If I were to try some new routes I would probably try parking on sunrise highway and taking California riding and hiking trail or la cima trail (which appear to be more packed single track) to upper green valley fire trail and fireroad. This is the one area that was really fun to ride but it was over very quickly. Once the fireroad opens up to its time to turn around and head back. For extra milage you could head up soapstone fireroad for a very tough loose rocky climb and turnaround once you reach stonewall creek fire road for a semi sketchy rocky downhill.

    Rocky fire road up west side of middle peak fire road, down same way. Good views, good work out

    This is a good beginner/intermediate ride in a really nice setting. The park is in the Laguna Mountains and can either be blazing hot or even have snow in the winter.

    Great trail system. The Park has opened up a lot of singletrack over the years which has really made this park a great place to ride. Upper Green Valley trail loop is as good as anything around. Good camping also.

    Beautful ride in a pristine area of San Diego. Good mix of fire road and singletrack. A very sensitive area now since the recent fires decimated a majority of the biggest trees in the park. Still very beautiful.
