The Exfoliator: A stretch of lightning-fast singletrack that drops just under 400 feet in less than a mile. Race your friends, or just the clock, but don’t eat it when the trail turns to sand. Worth every bit of sweat, this mile-long downhill drops just shy of 400 feet and is a mix of flowy single track, berms, and small jumps.

Access Info

From San Diego, take Interstate 15 North to Interstate 215 to the Hwy 74 off ramp. Take Hwy 74 east through Hemet and come up the mountain to Mountain Center. Continue on Hwy 74 past Mountain Center. Hurkey Creek Park is about 3 miles past Mountain Center on your left hand side.
