Rose Canyon - TRAIL

Rose Canyon - Trail, MAS Miramar, California

This has to be some of the best Single Track left in San Diego! It's a Fire/Hiking trail that runs next to a riverbead from 805 to the 5. I rate this ride as a medium Technical! Dont let the rolling single tracks fool ya. I've had freinds hurt themselvs on these tracks. From Riverbeads to 6inch single tracks this trail has got you covered. I havn't seen a park ranger yet but keep an eye your speed.

as the guy says it marain bear mostly, but you can run into all the other surrounding canyons. this place has it all, but it's all split up into smaller sections. great place for setting up your bike or testing new equipment. last time i rode there was around four years ago. the baby heads are mostly settled in now which were annoying preveiously and all of the trails are much easier to ride on.

just go everywhere, down the dead ends, the forest loops, on the single track, the fire roads, explore and play. make it as easy or as hard as you want.

It seems that everyone has Rose Canyon confused with Marian Bear. Rose Canyon is NORTH of the 52 and is split by the train tracks. The trail you all are describing is Marian Bear. Rose Canyon is a big hiking trail loop, whereas Marian Bear is singletrack.

There really is not a lot of single track, if there is it dead ends and your stuck. This is a beginner Trail. The only reason I ride it is because it can be connected to the Tri-canyon's and make a 12ish mile loop. FLAT, use it to get in the miles and away from all the concrete. Explore and enjoy, there are some fun parts and can be made into around a 20 mile ride if you do all the extra credit you can find. Gets a 2 just because it is dirt and not man made. Thank God!

start off Regents in Marian Bear Park (San Clemente Canyon) ride east along the 52 till you hit the end near the 805. Ride/Walk under the 805... Look for the trail can be hard to see at times. Stay on the trail on the other side of the 805 and keep to the right. ride under the power lines and if you can thru the nursery (you might have to ride to the front entrance and then to the Left) and down the fire road to the other canyon. back under the 805. Enjoy the ride along the Train tracks (25-200 yards away) till the 5 then ride south along the 5 and under the 52 till the trail can head east back along the 52. and back to your car.

I've read the reviews, and it's apparent that you all have this trail confused with Marian Bear. Rose Canyon is NORTH of the 52. Marian Bear is south.

Well if instead of exititng genesse go all the way to clarmont mesa one more exit away.....go south on the exit and there should be a sing for the park that's 100 yards away......from there u park and head out east that way you enjoy more of the course than from the genesse exit.....its not to hard to ride few hills and some trails to go out on.....so the ride basically takes you from interstate 5 all the way up to the 805 so enjoy!

Customer Service

All routes are pretty fun if you want more of a ride stay to the left....

im a somewhat beginner since ive only ridden since december. went on a group ride and i found this to be a fun fun ride if you take the single track. climbs we doable for me. and i regret holding back on one steep downhill since my rear brakes were shot. had to bail off the bike and had a small fall that couldve been alot worse. sorry to the guys behind me to have had slowed you down, you know who you are. the water levels were fun and easy to cross. didnt see too much poisen oak so i think its ok to ride around this time. if their are any newbies with a little conditioning its a great place for a quick 10-15 doable workout with climbs. great ride.

Customer Service

right away from the dead end entrance to the roadie trail go down the steep river/aquaduct half pipe, ride down at an angle to be safe. cross the river and head left to the single track. follow through to where the train tracks and the big washout is. turn back and head through the same way for a workout or go through the easy side on the right for a cool down. fun ride i will return and fully conquer this trail.

good trails but watch out for "cruisers". they will park in the staging areas in vans or small p/u trucks and are usually backed into the spaces.

Customer Service

all the rails are good but keep a sharp eye out for cruisers, dog crap on the trail, and poison oak!

This a fun trail that has lots of fun single track. Like the previous post lots of Poison Oak so look out. The last time I was out there it was starting to grow out on to the trail so be careful.

Customer Service

Park at the lot off Genesee Ave. near the 52. Head East for a warm up then double back ride down to the 5 up and around you will come out back at Genesee Ave. near UC High School then turn around and head back.

a good starter trail once the rider has learned the bike. no real hills to grind. several small offshoot trails from the main long trail. Some caution is warranted during the summer months due to Poison oak growth. Stay to the trails and your okay. If you have a child your grooming for the MTB life or a wife new this is a great starter kit. Not for the die hard hill climber or drop kings.

Customer Service

52 west to Gennesee. enter park and follow main trail east. turn around at eroded face hill and turn around hit several side shoots , travel rock bed under over pass contiue west towards I-5 and return to the lot.
