Daley Ranch Northern Entrances

For the San Diego riders that frequent Daley Ranch in Valley Center.

I live closer to the northern edge of Daley Ranch and have twice tried to find these entrances that I see others have taken (Strava maps). Two roads, Frace Ln and Red Iron Bark Dr. seem to be the entrances of choice. Red Iron Bark Dr. leads to a gated community with Private Property / No Trespassing posted; Frace Ln has leads to a chain across two poles with the same notice.

Anyone familiar with the northern entrances of Daley Ranch and how you get in there without trespassing?

Note - I'm familiar with the southern entrances. My goal is to enter via the north, ride a loop and return to the north on the trails.

Thanks!

-Adam

should be an entrance at couger pass / n broadway. Been a while since I've gone in that way but will put you near the fun single track "bobcat". Keep heading east (up) and will take you to cougar ridge and you should know the area from there. Stick right and will go to Crestline down to the valley or stay up and do Boulders loop. Hitting a left at Cougars ridge will be a short climb before the decent into the bowl of the park.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm coming from the northeastern part of Valley Center. Broadway @ Cougar Pass is further west with a hill on Mirar De Valle Road that has got to be 30% grade (no kidding). That's why I was asking about some of these entrances on the east that I've seen others map their rides on.

That road your talking about. Daley ranch sold that land about a decade ago when the housing market was boiling. Closed off the few single tracks going out that way. Doesn't look like any housing got built still but all private land. Haven't been up there since, wasn't worth the hassle for me. These days I just go in by the dog park up the switches then up to Sage.

Cougar Pass is the only "official" Northern entrance. I don't think I would chance taking those routes you mentioned, even if others have.

Living in north Escondido I ride from home, up Cougar Pass, tool around Daley and usually do a big loop back around via the La Honda entrance.
