The Tunnel of Love is a fantastic trail, a lot like the Exfoliator, fast and sweet… Very Sweet

This ride is both technically and physically moderate. Tunnel of Love is a pretty well known trail, and once you’ve experienced it, you know why it is well known.

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.
