Review: From the parking lot you hit a steep 0.3-mile climb off the start that turns your cold legs into Jell-O. After that you descend for over a mile into the canyon of rolling hills, park benches and portable bathrooms. This place is not recommended to ride alone; you can find yourself in the middle of nowhere fast. The trails I took do not loop around back to the car. Lots of Rattle Snakes but nothing compared to Turnbull Canyon right now. It is a nice smooth trail, great for beginning your first couple of rides. On the way out is a nice 3 – 4 mile consistent climb out of the canyon. Its ok, nothing special; I will return again to explore deeper in the canyon with a riding buddy. JDT

Review: This trail was alright, it's a very beautiful area that's only tainted once in a while with a few large electricity units hanging and buzzing above. So far, I've only ridden down the Telegraph Canyon area, but there's a lot more to explore... the place is huge. The maps are detailed (I can scan one in if requested) and getting lost is pretty hard, so if you're determined to get lost prepare for one hell of a challenge... this park will end up spitting you out right back at your car. :D Anyway, great place to go, very quiet, but I don't recommend going alone like I did... just a word of advice. :)

Similar Trail: El Morro (Crystal Cove) for the beach view. :)
