Old Stage Coach Trail - Trail, Poway, California

Old Stage Coach Trail - Trail, Poway, California

DESCRIPTION

One cool trail that construction hasn't demolished (yet). Proceed under the bridge and to the east. After approx. 3/4 mile construction has graded a small section of the trail, proceed down small hill and cut back up to the left. Continue approx. one mile to the creek. Be carfull the trail just drops off at the creek, follow the foot trail down and cross carfully on the rocks. The (now single track) trail continues for approx. 1/3 mile and ends at construction. Turn around and head back. On the way back, approximately 1/2 mile from the creek there is a short steep side trail up to a saddle area for those who want a little more burn action for the legs. When back to the beginning continue accros the gravel drive and up the (leg burning) switchback hill. Once at the top catch your breath with a killer veiw. Have fun on the way back to your car.

This trail is mostly fireroads and old jeep trails. There are some steep sections and a few ruts. It is not a technical trail but will get your heart rate going on the climbs. There are a few sandy sections but they are not ride stoppers. The trail meanders through a neighborhood. Some of the trail signs were burned during the October 2007 fire. It is not too hard to get around.

Customer Service

Just stay on the main trail. Its not too hard to figure out.

This is a nice beginner/outa shaper trail with minimal elevation change. I use it as a connector route from Poway over to Rancho Penasquitos. Doesn't appear to get very much traffic at all.

You can ride from this start location all the way to Sorrento Valley (via Penasquitos Canyon) if you so choose.

From the start location described above, the trail heads WEST (not east). Follow the trail over toward I-15 where it loops around a hill and drops down next to a water treatment building. The trail skirts the periphery of the facility immediately adjacent to the chain link fence and drops you off on a paved frontage road at the gate to the facility. Continue up the paved road a couple of hundred yards to a turnoff (to the right) over a small bridge which takes you under the I-15 overpass. The trail terminates at the horse stables at Black Mountain Road and Mercy Rd (across from the Los Penasquitos canyon parking lots). Other than the short section under the I-15 this trail is 100% smooth, super non-technical. My only caveat would be to look out for and be overtly couteous to, equestrians. I've never encountered ANY while riding this trail, and to be honest, haven't noted any tell tale hoof prints but it DOES originate on the west end at the stables.

It's a cool trail with a little bit for everybody. Beginners can shorten it up or walk sections if they like, whereas advanced riders can tear it up. It's mostly a regular dirt path with rocky/sandy patches now and then. Never seen more than two bikes on the trail.

Customer Service

As descibed.
