No. of Reviews: 3

Enter and cross the bridge, go left. ride to the top and follow to a single track off to the right with a small sign by it. ride for 100yds to a T and go left. take this along the ridge and stay right. A sweeping left downhill takes you down to suycott wash, go straight and climb a series of four short but techical climbs, stay right. After a short while you start to climb the back side of Fortuna North. stay right until just before the baby head rock switch back section and there is a sign that points to a newer trail to the left. This takes you down along the 52. Some technical down and steep ups. after the fence ends there is a narrow single track to the left that takes you under the 52. ride this for about four miles and you come to a hike section that is covered with rocks up to the graded property break from Miramar. there is a fence there to the left go under and ride a short up, long down and up again, staying to the right. when you start to go down again be on the lookout for a single track dropping off to the right. take this and pedal your ass off. this takes you all the way back under the 52 to santee. follow it all the way to the asphalt and then towards the visitor center. before the visitor center with a burm on the right, go between the rock and pole at a single track on the right. follow this to the right, don't worry the trail is there just keep going. it curves around to the other entrance off of mission gorge at the water crossing. go through that and up the climb to the T intersection. go left and climb to the next intersection and turn right. about 50yds to a single track downn to the left take this down and up over to just across the bridge from where you started. bring your lungs.

Summary:
Fast as you want to go, but certain paths may require more technical abilities (ruts, very rocky surfaces, slick gravel on steep downhill). Several routes to choose from, may want to look at Google maps beforehand but generally easy to find your way back.

Recommended Route:
This entrance (@ Clairemont Mesa Blvd) is currently closed off to public access due to San Diego County Water Authority doing all sorts of construction. Just make a u-turn, hang the first left, then another left onto Calle de Vida. Go up the hill and park. Go straight through the gate, up the short hill and you'll see the bridge on your left. Then go with the original trail route described.
