Tijuana River National Estuary RR

Average Rating:    (2.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

The trails are 5 miles long, and all dirt. Water fountains and picnic areas can be found a few miles towards the southwest to Borderfield State park. Not many visitors to this area except from U.S. Border Patrol. However, people do visit this area either on bicycle or on foot for bird watching. Trail varies from flat to bumpy hills and sometimes there are small streams if it has just rained. The trails also head into bambo forests.

Trail Directions
The trail is located right at the U.S./Mexico border. Take Highway 5 south, exit Dairy Mart Road, and make a right turn off the ramp. You'll see Mexico just off in the horizon. Go straight about 200 yards and you'll find a parking lot just off to the right. From Here there are several trails that you can pick from and explore.

Summary:
I have ridden these trails a few times just because they are close to my home (desperation) my advise would be to steer clear as the soil is HEAVILY polluted from dumping (200+++ years of the worst waste and sewage known to man). just a heads up to people contemplating this as a place to hone your skills (don't). just a truthful heads up people (research it first please). The only reason this place exists is it was (is) a haven for narco smuggling.

Summary:
This park isn't good for much riding. It does however provide a good view of some really fun training hills. Once there, you can easily get 6-8 miles of pure long climbing which is great for a workout. ofcourse what goes up must come down so the downhill is nice too. Great for a workout ride after work if you live in South Bay. Border Patrol agents are friendly, just wave and let them do their job...

Recommended Route:
I-5 South to Dairy Mart Road. Make a right onto Dairy Mart and head South. Once Dairy Mart turns into Monument Road ride up trails which are South. The hills are visible from Monument road and basically run along the International Border (hence the fence) Westbound. Enjoy...

Summary:
This is a trail mostly meant for exploring and refining your skills. I wouldn't recommend it for fitness, however, it can test your skills in sand and bumpy terrain. The scenery is great, from desert to lush forests. Highly recommend traveling this trail with someone since there are not many visitors to this area, except from the U.S. border patrol.

Recommended Route:
Just find a trail and explore.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If you head further southwest, about 5 miles from the parking area, you'll find Border Field State Park. You can also follow dairy mart road south which turns into Monument drive and that leads into the park as well.
