I rode this path for the tour de poway event. If you add the climb from the service roads in the mix, you get a decent amount of climbing, and scenic XC.

Total distance is 18.5 miles, with approx 2300' of gain (aggregate).

I give this 3 stars since its mostly a conditioning ride, there aren't any meaningfull downhill's or technical challenge.

Start at Metcate (not sure of spelling) st.by the community park. Ride through the service roads until you get to Scripps parkway - then enter the park throug the service entrance.
