Mt. Pinos – Chula Vista CG to the Bottom

The Mt. Pinos trail is one of the few trails in Southern California that is almost entirely downhill, making it suitable for big bikes. But be aware that this is a two-way trail used by mountain bikers, hikers and horses. People coming uphill have the right of way and mountain bikers should yield to all traffic. Below are two routes: the first is from the Chula Vista campground and the other is the “complete” route from the Nordic Ski area parking lot down, which passes through the Chula Vista campground.
