Kernan Trail Details
The Kernan is all about tight-banked turns and whoop-de-doos with some interspersed rocky areas. All the while dumping off a bunch of elevation in a short distance that is sure to peg your fun-o-meter. You reach the bottom of the Kernan all too quickly and you are back where you started at for a total of 20 miles. The Kernan Trail is also the site of the Sagebrush Safari downhill event.
Chaparral covered hills, panoramic views of Kitchen Valley and Morena Lake.
North end: I-8 at Pine Valley Rd. Take the Pine Valley exit and park to the right in the cul-de-sac. Follow Bear Valley Road to the Kernan Cycle Trail signs. South end: I-8 east from San Diego to Buckman Springs Road. Drive south on Buckman Springs Road 3.6 miles to Corral Canyon Road. Turn right on Corral Canyon Road and drive 6.2 miles to the Four Corners Trailhead.
