“An east-west trail that provides access to the majority of Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve trails.”— Zander Göpfert
Start at the Penasquitos Creek Park parking area and head west. The trail will wind around the creek and end at the highway. There are several creek tributaries you can cross along the trail.
At the highway, you cross the overpass and return on the south side of the creek heading east.
Besides the main trail, there is singletrack along the creek and outside of the main trail. There are also a number of spur trails to explore.
