Jump on this single track right near the intersection of "the alley" and "La Trepadora". There are areas where the trail gets wider by not many. It runs parallel to Proctor Valley Road so you won't be too far from help. It bridges the gap from Otay Lakes on the south end, and the Jamul area on the north end. There is one super steep short climb that is essentially Hike a bike, but it's only about 100 yards or so.
