More Info

New Coverage Area
The new coverage area is 90% complete. The remaining 10% of trails are non-motorized. You might see some random trail fragments in the outback. I expect to have the full coverage area complete in August.

Otay Mountain
I’ve been in communication with the BLM office that administers Otay Mountain. They are currently in the process of changing “the plan” for the area. The plan that they’re expecting to approve will be closing a some roads in the area. Puebla Tree runs from Otay Truck Trail along the border to Marron Valley is expected to be closed soon. If you haven’t had a chance to enjoy it, do so now.

New Name! San Diego Trail Map
The name of the map has been changed to go along with the new territory.
