Very nice day long adventure ride with relatively easy sections of dirt amidst excellent twisty paved roads. This track winds through Temecula, Palomar Mountain and the Mesa Grande areas. The dirt roads are generally on the easier side in good weather conditions.
Be sure to stop in Julian for some apple pie and needed energy before attacking a picturesque fire road (FR11S01) through the Cleveland National Forest and finishing on the incredibly twisty Lilac Road and Rainbow Canyon.
Beware of oncoming traffic on some of these narrow roads. If time or weather road conditions prove challenging, there are ample places to bail out for a quicker ride home on bigger roads.
