Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve
Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve - Olivenhain Water District
This north county ride, which is about 9.5 miles with over 1900 feet of climbing, has a tough climb in the beginning known as the Way Up Trail. It's very rocky throughout. It's a bit challenging, but the downhill is a great reward. Equine incline can be done clockwise or counter clockwise, but it's a bit more difficult clockwise. Once at the top you have a view of the Olivenhain Reservoir.
On weekends the Way Up trail gets pretty busy and all trails are multi-use. Try a weekday if you want less traffic.
