    Cuyamaca Rancho State Park

Kelly Ditch Trail is so named because it follows Kelly Ditch, a century-old waterworks project. Chinese laborers dug a ditch in order to channel runoff water from the Cuyamaca Mountains into the then newly formed Cuyamaca Reservoir.

Difficult trail for mountain biking. There are many fallen trees on the path forcing you to pick up your bike. This trail is either uphill or downhill (no flat areas). There are many trail logs across the trail that make the ride a bit more difficult for new bikers

Access Info

From Julian, drive eight miles south on California 79. As you reach Cuyamaca Reservoir, just past the point where Engineers Road crosses the highway, you'll see a state park boundary sign and another sign that reads "Trail." Park in a safe manner on the shoulder of the highway.
