This trail has two attitudes. At the top it is flowy single track through the chaparral. But once you get down into the canyon it is a rock garden like the nearby Romero.

You can ride San Ysidro as a loop by climbing up the Romero Fire Rd and transiting to the trail head across East Camino Ciello.

Hikers are frequently encountered on this trail and occasionally horses. Please ride with a bell.
