This is an easy, out-and-back, 12-mile round-trip ride. The terrain is gentle over an unpaved two-wheel-drive road that is in good condition for most of its length. The road does have a few sandy spots, and some of the short hills contain loose rocks and ruts. Los Penasquitos Canyon is six miles in length and lies in the midst of San Diego suburbia. Just a few minutes of pedaling will take you into the deep shade of sycamores, eucalyptus, live oak, pepper trees, and willows.

Nice trail, great scenery and fairly easy if limited to the allowed bike trails but there are a few interesting challenges to make it fun.
