Home Depot (ffire station) trail

Average Rating:    (3.83 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

This trail is a gentle downhill that you can get some pretty good speed through if you keep spinning. Lots of single track/man made bridges/ "see-saws" and all around fun. No need to really even spinf if your a newbie or crank down at a fast speed. Stay to the right at the bottom of the trail so you dont go through the mud.

From the 805 go east on H street and turn left at Paseo Ranchero. Park at the YMCA right in front of Chula Vista Fire Station 4 and ride down the little dirt hill to the right of the station by the confined space rescue props (props on right side). Go to the bottom of the first dirt hill and right where it starts going back up, look to the right and you will see the trail head..thats it, take it all the way and it dumps you behind the Home Depot

Summary:
just found this trail last month, i love it. good jumps and great flow for faster riding. all the jumps can be bipassed for us newbies.

Recommended Route:
park at the ymca head west to the fire house trail, exit by home depo and cross H street and take that trail downhill and head east you'll end up and a gravel circle head up the gravel hill from there and go right when you get to the road go left and you'll find your way back to the parking lot/YMCA in two blocks.

Summary:
I have known about this trail for about 8 months now and finally came across it today while riding the canyons in the afternoon. It was quite a bit of fun with all the jumps and narrow bridges. Its great to have this for something easy I can bust out after work. A heads up though, the trail "starts" at the fire station since all the jumps point to the west (toward home depot) so if you wanna jump, start at the fire station.

There are tons of trails in between the housing developments that can provide you with days of fun.

Summary:
The trail is an urban playground for mountain bikers. I call it, "canyon jumping." It is mostly composed of single track in the canyons and street riding as you connect to the various trails in the canyons located throughout Chula Vista and Bonita. If you connect all of the trails in the area, you can ride "teeter totter" ramps, steep 70 degree climbs, steep short downhills such as, Pedro's shoot, black Beauty, and death hill just to name a few. It is a cool ride that will please all levels if the entire course is ridden.

Summary:
Everything about this trail is pitiful. It is slow, flat, and easy, like my mother-in-law. If any less effort was required, I might as well have been riding in a parking lot. It is an insult to any real biker's skills to waste his or her time on this trail, and I was embarassed to be seen loading up my bike at the end of this sesame street ride. I know almost no one has my level of ability, but even the least skilled of riders should challenge themselves more than this. Go big or go home. If you don't break a bone in your first week of riding, you are a coward.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Chilean Andes have some mildly interesting rides.

Arealbiker, You are so foolish to write up such a post. How old are you to think like this: " break a bone in a week nonesence "

This is one of so many trails are there in Chula Vista that are build, can cared for by various groups that ride down there and enjoy.

Go big or go home? you go home and make sure you never come back as you are definatley welcome down here, spcially with your poor attitude.

There are miles and miles of single tracks of varying difficulty that connect together. You can bacially ride all day and you still haven't done 1/2.

So, instead of being rude and disrespectful, come down and ask someone to show you around.
