Loads of fast singletrack with banked turns and whoopty-doos. Some steep and rocky spots keep it interesting. The initial
climb was progressively looser towards the top to the point of being almost unclimbable. We did a little over 2 hours of riding and there is much more out there. The ride would definitely suck if it was muddy. Keep an eye out for motorcyclists. We encountered a half dozen or so. All were very considerate and aware of our group. I
might even go so far as to say this is my favorite ride

Access Info

From San Diego head east on the I-8 towards El Centro. You will travel through El Cajon, Alpine, and Pine Valley. Exit on the "Buckman Springs" Offramp. Turn right at the bottom of the ramp. Go through one stop sign. Turn Left on Buckman Springs road. Travel about four miles and you will see a small USFS ranger station (Cottonwood). Turn right on the first road past the station (Corral Canyon/Lake Morena). You will see a sign for Lake Morena. Travel on the dirt road for about three miles until you see the bottom of Kernan Trail. Park in the dirt along the left side of the road.
