|Belle's Bluff - Alpine Trailhead - Friday, September 19, 2014|
|Belle's Bluff - Alpine - San Diego County|
Take I-8 East from San Diego Area apprx 15 Miles to Alpine. Take TAVERN Road exit South (right) to the end (3-4 miles). Left on Japatul Rd. Head east apprx 3 Miles. After you Cross a river bridge, look at the hill to your left, notice the steep, diagonal cut up the hill from right to left. find a place to park your vehicle, near the gate, this is also a horse trail so be nice. take the long steep trail up and around the mountain. Near the top, the trail levels out and heads north. find the singletrack to the right (east) and keep heading up... the trail gets rough and eroded. climb as long as you can stand it (3+ miles??) then rest, turn around and haul-ass back down.
Parking Update: I found a new parking area (with port-a-potty's) about a half mile west fo the bridge. The parking lot is for a fishing reservoir on the south side of the road. the "turn-in" road is marked with "NO-PARKING" signs, but the lot is opened during daylight hours. Read the signs on the bulletin board to be sure of rules + hours. Thomas Guide page 1254
