Corral Canyon Circle Trail (incl. Espinosa)

Level 1+ to 2+                 (Rating System)

Corral Canyon OHV Park is located in Cleveland National Forest in San Diego’s East County near the community of Lake Morena.  There are a number of trails in Corral Canyon for both 4x4s and dirt bikes. Many are at the higher end of the difficulty scale. The loop described here is more moderate. The loop is circles the entire park. It includes Corte Madera Road, Espinosa Trail, Los Pinos Road. Most of it is at the 1+ level. It gets a little more interesting on the east-west section on the north end of the loop. There is one place, N32.74986° W116.58719°, where many people needed lockers in the past. (2016 or so.) I think it has worn down some and is now passable without lockers with a good choice of line.

Note: Corte Madera Rd and Espinosa trail are closed from 14 Dec, 2020 to 15 Dec, 2021. This is part of the Valley Fire Closure Area.
