Mountain Biking Pachea Trail

****   Add a review
#260 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California
#3,271 in the world

the trails start from various points on the mountain foothills. There are many private large properties, so dont jump fences or trespass. There are virtually hundreds of ways to descend. Many of the singletrack has excellent jumps and rocks to roll over. This is strictly a downhill adventure, so an extra vehicle at the bottom of Pachea Trail is an easy way to hit the hills for the majority of the day.

    Features are still there but ground is super loose. Super rutted and at the top they installed a camera as well as no trespassing signs. Super sketch all together

    Great ride but you need to have a bit of time to explore the area trails are very sandy and loose but very easy to get around.

    Thanks to off-road vehicles and jerk-off taggers, this trail is now off-limits for everyone. Got a ticket from a sherriff for entering a "fire closure area". The cop was cool, just doing his job. He told me many off road vehicles had entered from pachea trail and the Ramona Bowl Association was tired of the vandalism. "Juan" "andrea" "starbucks" and all the tresspassing Off-roaders Thanks for screwing everyone!

    You have to know where to ride on this trail. There are many options in choosing. You can go from the guard rail, the top section(norco), or the very very top section(platuea). Overall this is a great downhill trail for beginners and experienced riders. Everytime I go up there, there is something new to try.

    Had a chance to ride this today and I was really impressed. I have ridden much of the hill but never thought this trail would be worth the effort. I see myself riding this every time I find myself in Hemet from now on.

    The trail itself is fairly easy if you are riding slow and avoiding the features but at speed and hitting the many jumps and sending the many rollers/drops the trail offers, it is a completely different experience.
