Questhaven Rd.
 
I grew up in north county and remember driving around Elfin Forrest, Questhaven Rd. I moved away then came back a few years ago. That San Elijo Hills development was a real shocker. I have only been down Elfin Forest between San Marcos and Escondido once in the last nine years since coming back, and Questhaven not at all. I see on Google Maps that Questhaven is now closed to cars. Can you still bike through it? http://goo.gl/maps/Mli8W

don't see why not, posted as a nature trail w/ a horse gate. I just ride on Harmony/ Elfin rd then right in downtown and UP the hill to double peaks then drop down into San Marcos. If heading to the coast I'll take a left in downtown SEH and make a right on Melrose up to Palomar airport road.

The old chicken farm back on Harmony near the Esco side is currently getting bulldozed to few a few hundred houses on that land. Ride that road as much as you can before the add traffic makes it a terror for one of SD cycling gems.

The lyric is classic, and expresses how I often feel when I see the changes this area has gone through.

You can bike through, but the section between gates is not paved. You'll be fine on a road bike though.
