Otay Valley Park Day Ride

Otay Lakes County Park

The Otay Valley Regional Park(OVRP) will be celebrating their 9th annual OVRP Day with a number of activities including a 10+ miles mountain bike ride. IMPORTANT: this is an intermediate skill level and above ride and NOT a newbie friendly ride due to remote location and terrain difficulty. This is a rare opportunity to ride on the eastern part of the park that is not yet officially open to the public. We are given a one day green light to ride this area for this event only. There’s plans for future trails, camping site and more and you are getting to see this beautiful area before all this happen. We are riding from the Otay Lake County Park, they will not charge us the usual $3 parking fee but make sure to let them know at the entrance that you are part of the mountain bike ride. We will ride on dirt roads, beautiful singletrack and a couple of blocks of paved road. Make sure to arrive by 7:45 am to sign waivers and gear up on time. There’s more celebration after the ride with lunch and more, directions for that will be given before the ride. Ride is limited to 40 riders only.
