    Cuyamaca Rancho State Park

35 miles east on San Diego, the Cuyamaca Rancho trails are not especially technical (both full-suspension and hardtail bikes thrive here), but are best suited to riders of intermediate ability (due to the amount of climbing).
Parking Area 1
The first parking area is a small dirt lot just past Thousand Trails on the east side of the road. The singletrack is a short ways north of here
The first section of trail has a lot of rollers.

Access Info

TO TRAILHEAD: Take I-8 east to CA-79 north. Continue 6.8 miles to trailhead.
