    Will do. It's not an illegal trail on private property, so there's nothing to hide.

    The last picture looks like Barrett Lake, looking northwest.
    The suspension of your bike sucks if it's different than mine. Really. It sucks. Big time.

    I didn't even know about the place until a couple of weeks ago after reading an article in the UT. It's not a destination by any means with fairly wide (4'), sanitized singletrack, but you can have fun with several granite slabs adjacent to the trail. Doing all three loops will probably take 35-45 minutes, but if you couple this ride with El Cap across Wildcat Canyon Rd. you can probably get a decent ride in.

    I live 15 minutes from the reserve and didn't even know about it. Sounds like a lot of you didn't know about it either

    Thanks for posting this. Great thread! I love the guess which trail posts. Let's have more.
    BTW Mrs Cogito guessed ATT and knew it wasn't and knew you wouldn't.

    It's actually on Wildcat Canyon Rd. just a couple miles south of Barona Casino. You'll see signs on Wildcat Canyon. The entrance is directly across from the entrance to the El Cap park.

    Is biking there OK?

    I was poking around the net and found a few sites that said biking was not allowed at this time. I found a county site that said you could hike and horse it but it said nothing about bikes. Both of these sites were dated. Is there an official "no bikes allowed" there?

    Also, one of the same dated sites that El Cajon mtn does not allow biking there too. Any help would be appreciated.

    The only signs we saw said "Off road activity prohibited" or something like that. There was no sign designating which users can or can't use the trail, and it wasn't for lack of signs. Trails were very clearly marked including a large kiosk at the trailhead and informational signs scattered through the park. I wouldn't have posted it if I thought it was off limits to bikes. Perhaps the site(s) are outdated? I couldn't find an actual website for the reserve.

    Forgot to mention that a County to County or Sea to Sea trail runs through the park. It appears that the trail will drop down to San Vicente from the trail we saw. We didn't take that fork as we had very limited time, but that could be a really cool descent.

    If you are talking about the El Capitan Reserve then yes, Oakoasis is directly across from the staging area for El Cap. You can park at the El Cap lot, look across Wildcat Canyon Rd. and you'll see the sign for Oakoasis. Go down that road a couple hundred yards and you'll see the paved parking lot.
