    Mt. Palomar climb route

    Heading to San Diego next week to train and for vacation and hoping to climb Mt Palomar. I plan to ride with the swamis club for a few rides but want to get in some time in the mountains. Does anyone have any routes they could provide for Palomar? Looking to park near the mountain and ride up. Ive read that south is steeper and has water on the route… I am open for anything.

    thanks

    This has been discussed in this forum, you can use search to find threads with this information. But the condensed version is, you park near the casino (Harrah's) - possibly in the overflow lot near to the gas station south of the casino, go east on 76 and then up South Grade. 4300' of elevation gain at 7% average. There is no water and no facilities along the climb except for a convenience store at the top of the mountain, which is open limited hours, possibly weekends only but I'm not sure, and some sort of artesian well on the shoulder of South Grade about half a mile from the top, which may or may not work and may or may not require quarters to operate.
