Mt. Lowe Road is a dirt fire road that extends from the top of the Cuesta Pass along the East side of the Cuesta Ridge for 7 miles, where it intersects with Reservoir Canyon Road. Mt. Lowe Road can be accessed by parking at or riding to the top of the Cuesta Grade, and it can be used to access the very fun Bulldozer trail.


BE AWARE! Do not attempt any land access or usage beyond the immediate southern edge of the road. Private Property Rights are strongly practiced by land owners and trespassers have been removed and prosecuted.
