Length: 13.8 mi • Est. 7 h 38 m
Enter through the brown gate next to Pio Pico RV Campground. Please note: the trail to Marron Valley has been gated and locked by the county. The gate from Otay Mountain with exit to 905 is now locked as the land owner will not grant access through his property. Otay Mountain and its trails seem to be an out and back now with only the Pico gate as entry and regress. The route on this page has the user starting at the Pio Pico Campground, passing Doghouse Junction, summiting Otay Mountain, and then exiting on the eastern side, via Marron Valley Road. The entrances to Otay Mountain from the west side are mostly closed with private property signs. Although this route is open to hikers and mountain bikers, this is mostly an off-road driving route. For off-road drivers, this is likely easy, for hikers/mountain bikers this would likely be a moderate to hard trek. Given the proximity to the border, you will likely see several Border Patrol vehicles. There are several off-shoots of this main trail that may provide more of a challenge.Show more

This is a popular off-road driving area. The map shown on this page covers a mostly gravel road that starts at the end of Marron Valley Road and continues up the Otay Mountain Truck Trail to Doghouse Junction, and then to Otay Mountain summit. If you are off-road driving, this route is easy. If you are hiking or biking, this would be moderate. The route could likely be done with a crossover or hybrid bike. Some visitors may wish to extend their trip by continuing north on the Minnewawa Truck Trail to the Pio Pico Campground. Given the proximity to the border, you will likely see several Border Patrol vehicles. There are several off-shoots of this main trail that may provide more of a challenge.Show more
