Mountain Biking Torrey Pines Loop

****   Add a review
#263 of 1,000 mountain bike trails in California
#3,197 in the world

Located in Torrey Highlands Park, a somewhat rough singletrack with good elevation (up to 15% grade) changes that will test all but the stoutest and fittest. Ride includes stair stepped switchbacks, rocky patches, sand and catcus gardens. Can connect to Lagoon & Sword Way trails in Gonzales Canyon for a 6 mile loop. West trail returns to trail head parking lot with a trip through the "dog park" area . The loop is intersected north/south by a utility/fireroad that can also be used. Hidden gem in San Diego area. Two hour parking limit during mid day.

    I did a quick ride on this trail and had a lot of fun. There is a lot to offer in this little area. The only thing I didn't like was the two hour parking limit.

    While this trail will check your fitness level there are other trail in the area to choose first. Trail has steep stairstepped grades with tire grabbing sand at the bottom. Always lots of walkers or horses on the trail. You can extend the trail but not work the effort.

    very nice and technical single track trail, but it is to short. I was able to extend it a bit by riding to Gonzalez trail however that trail is flat and boring.
    Anyway I would ride it again whenever I am pressed by time. I did not see anybody at Torrey Pines loop, but run into a few hikers, runners and horse riders at Gonzalez trail.
