      Less than an hour's drive from San Diego lies a rocky, moderately hilly, desert landscape that would seem to be created for mountain biking. The weather, of course, is Southern-California perfect. The rides aren't too extremely difficult, but they definitely pose a challenge. And riders that take on the hills are rewarded with gorgeous panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. One of the area's premiere biking destinations, Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, offers a variety of opportunities for off-road adventure—the Green Valley Loop, the Stonewall Mine trail, the Cuyamaca Peak trail, and the trail to Oakzanita Peak.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country

      Access Info:
      Commences at the Green Valley Campground and Picnic Area in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, approximately 40 miles east of San Diego.
