    Cuyamaca Rancho State Park

At the visitors center, turn left onto Cold Stream singletrack and follow it onto the new Cold Spring Trail. Look around as you ride it--there are spectacular views of Stonewall and East Mesa (looking south). This trail was/is the result of 5 years of collaboration and hard work of many hands and organizations.

Cold Spring will dump you onto Stonewall Creek.

      Trail in great, pretty buff shape. There is water in the canyon that you cross a couple of times (easy crossings). Next time I'll out-and-back...
