Big Laguna Trail Details

Big Laguna Trail is a 10 mile loop trail located near Cuyamaca, California that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

Big Laguna Trail is one of SD county best from a recreational point of view. It is a beautiful trail rounding the perimeter of Laguna Meadow, and Big Laguna Lake. Its great for a moderate work-out ride. The trail doesn't gain much in elevation but makes up for it in such a beautiful and enjoyable ride.
