"This ridge top trail is conveniently located within day-trip distance of San Diego. It offers fantastic views of the Cottonwood Valley to the east and Bear Valley to the west. The trail leaves less than a mile south of I-8 at the Buckman Springs Road exit and immediately enters Cleveland National Forest through a gate. It starts to climb a shelf road onto the ridge. The shelf road is more than wide enough for a single vehicle, and there are plenty of passing places. Once on the ridge, the trail undulates over the green tops of the aptly named Fuzz, Sage, and Wire Peaks. The trail should only be attempted in dry weather. It is likely to be gated closed by the forest service when wet. Deep ruts in the trail and the uneven surface make it difficult to travel when wet. The trail descends to finish at Pine Valley, immediately south of the I-8 freeway exit. Special Attractions: Ridge top trail in Cleveland National Forest that travels over Fuzz, Sage, and Wire Peaks; Easy day trip from San Diego. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs."
