Rose Canyon Trail is a 8.9 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near San Diego, California and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
I'm giving this 1 star because the directions do not take you to the trail head, they take you to a gated community.
Fun hike for a day out of the house.
I was on the north side of the tracks. Looking forward to being on the southern side next time.
Great terrain, scenic and little traffic. I love that it connects to San Clemente Canyon trail.
Nice walk with my dog with spring blooms and streams flowing.
You can drive to the marked trail head because it starts in a gated apartment complex. park in the round about of Lucera and walk.
good views of the train. You do have to dodge across one major street.
Fun but we went on a weekday in the evening both times and found it to be a lil sketchy.
It was a great work out and very FUN
Nice local little hike. Lots of bicycles, but they seem friendly and polite enough. Beautiful in spring when plants are starting to bloom, and the creek is running.
Great little ride with lots of challenging hills. More of my review at: http://matthewsadventurediary.blogspot.com/2014/03/rose-canyon-mountain-biking-trail.html
Great beginner trail for MTB mostly flat that runs parallel to the train track . Encountered 4 ankle-shin high pools of water on the trail left side east of genesse ave
A very relaxing trail with minimal usage that runs along railroad tracks. The trail is good multiple uses such as trail running or just a simple stroll to enjoy the outdoors.
I think there is a little bit of confusion of exactly where rose canyon trail is. It starts on Genessee or Bothe ave and ends at the other. I started from Genessee but make sure you start on the actual path because there's also a dirt road for maintenance trucks a little ways up Genessee. As for the trail itself, it's pretty nice. There are a couple bridges to walk over and some shade offered by low hanging trees. The trail also connects with the San Clemente trail if you're feeling adventurous.
Nice paved trail, right off of the highway. Lets out right near the beach, and some other nice trails. Biker heavy, not as friendly to runners and walkers.
You can bike from Rose and around the area- there are some doozy hills which add difficulty to the initially flat path.
Nice rolling hills trails, that get you out of the city without having to drive out of the city!
Animal and bike friendly! Short to long distance hikes with options of many different routes,
some leading into local neighborhoods. Lots of color, plant life, birds, animals, and creeks.
