Trail shared by Zander Göpfert

A wide fire road that isn't in great shape but provides access to a stunning view at Cuyamaca Peak.

Runner Notes

A sustained grade makes this a tough but doable option for a hill climb.

Description

Access this fire road from Paso Pichaco campground as it winds to the west/southwest. This is a fairly tough trail as it has a sustained grade right around 10% with little to no shade.

Plan accordingly and bring lots of water and sun protection.
