Exploration & Beginner Ride @ Los Penasquitos Canyon to Santa Monica Ridge


Hey gang, let's ride Penasquitos Canyon to Santa Monica Ridge. The ride will consist of exploring Santa Monica Ridge and Del Mar Mesa Preserve. We will start at the Creek Park, ride up the power line trail, over the top to the fire/utility road leading to Santa Monica Ridge. From Santa Monica Ridge we will return through Del Mar Mesa Preserve to Penasquitos Canyon Preserve. At this point we will decide either to continue or return to our vehicles.

    Good beginners ride speed wise, some more technical sections but all seemed to have handled them well. Maybe we stopped a little too often

    It has come to my attention some of the trails are closed in the Del Mar Mesa/Santa Monica Ridge area. I have made a few phone calls and contacted San Diego Mountain Biking Association about specifics. The areas of closed trails are in litigation pending City Council approval of a plan to open these trails for public use again. This will not effect our ride as I have chosen legal/alternate routes ; )

    not quite sure why there are so many Advanced Begginer rides. Seems like an oxy moron. My wife and I would like to go on a beginner ride. Usually the categories are beginner, intermediate, and then advanced. Call me crazy.

      I have it posted on the MTB Project website. Search under Santa Monica Ridge and Del Mar Mesa preserve.
