    San Dieguito River Park

The San Dieguito River Parks North Shore trail system surrounds Lake Hodges in North County San Diego. Year round good riding in the scenic California inland valleys.

The North Shore trail is a hard pack mostly doubletrack trail with some tight singletrack for a couple of miles before you get to Lake Hodges Dam. Most of the trail is beginner to intermediate with some technical areas. This is the most popular trail within the SDRP due to it's ease of riding and close proximity to trail heads and staging areas.

If you want to see Lake Hodges this trail will take you on a tour of the whole North Shore. If your feeling hungry along the way stop at Hernandez Hideaway a nice little Mexican restaurant just off the trail on the way towards the dam.

If your looking for a longer ride keep going past the dam and link up to the Del Dios Gorge/Santa Fe Vly trail.
