Really, there aren't that many. I get my fix by:

Shuttling Noble Canyon
Pushing Iron Mountain
Shuttling Ortega
Shuttling Ted Williams

but really, its bleak down here. Move to Canada. :)

well noble/san juan are certainly NOT freeride trails. they are XC cruiser rides.
the freeride trails are

ted williams (go as big as you want, 40 foot gaps)
jamul (rocky, drops, jumps)
xxxxx (xx part has some decent drops)
also as mentioned iron mountain and lake poway are fairly technical.
aliso woods in OC that is 1hour+ away also.

but i agree, move to vancouver! 100X more freeride trails than here.

I didn't say they were outstanding choices, but for DH san juan and noble are two of the better around. when I need to get my flying time in, TW is definately my choice.

How is XX? I haven't been there in a while. last time I was out there (sept 2004?) it was real grim...

while moving to vancouver isn't feasible for me at the moment, I am making a 2 week trip up there in august.

WC is decent. there are some fun new drops, not alot of flow though, but some decent techno.
i'll be in whistler/shore in sept also.

Noble is NOT a DH or freeride trail. It's an excellent multi-use trail which is also great for aggressive cross country riding. True, you can shuttle it, but please be careful and give way to hikers and horses. It'll be a shame if we lose this gem of a trail.

TW is certainly the place to be for flight time and DH.

at least in teh purest sense of the word seems like a waste on SJT. there really isn't anything on that trail that warrants rear suspension let alone 6 inches of it. sure, you'll go a bit faster than I will on my HT but other than the fact that it's a long downhill it's not really a DOWNHILL!

Noble i will concede will be fun on a squishy. I don't know since I only ride a HT and can clean every section of the trail (except for that darn switchback). It definitely takes more finesse on the HT but I can see how a long travel squishy would be fun out there.

XX is the place for the pure freeride/DH experience.

fair enough, my apologies.
TW is totally legal and mentioned EVERYWHERE else (even bike mags). the other trail is also mentioned in a shitload of places, but probably best not to blatently advertise it. i'm glad someone posted about it for me though, that is how i found it!

The peeps responding should've thought about how to respond. If you look in the right hand qurater of this page you will see Welcome, skyjumper. Below that is Private Messages. YOu can click on that to receive, duh, private messages.

Some trails mentioned could be closed due to, the Man, spying on MTBR.

EDIT: Maybe the clicky part is more toward the middle right when the page is still at the begining.

Thnx Rodster--

Steve, absolutley LOVE yer new avitar!! Nothing says I love you all quite like a pair of f'n flies f'n...

For the grommets: NOBLE CANYON trail has been on the verge of closure many times thanks to DISRESPECTFUL IDIOTS who do shuttle/downhill runs. Don't do that.

There are no legal, open MTB trail in the Alpine area.....

...this Ted Williams trail sounds interesting, however. Not that I have the skills to ride it, I wouldn't mind checking it out...when this weather cools down...

Best Mex Food

My question is where are all the best Mexican food places near the freeride or downhill trails in San Diego.

1. Mananas in Alpine is good one, was there last week on a business trip and their breakfast huevos rancheros was killer.

2. That place in Poway at the corner of Twin Peaks RD and Espola RD is okay, close to Iron MT.

That one on HWY 371 in Anza that DFT and I tried wasn't too bad.
