Written Directions

Start in or near Spring Valley, CA and take Route 94 (Campo Road) west-southwest and just follow the road as far as you like or until it hits Interstate 8 (about 50 miles). Have fun.

Note: On the way you may want to take a nice detour off of Route 94 to Otay Reservior. If you do, just keep an eye out for Otay Lakes Rd at about the 10 mile point (see the map above). Take a right turn on to Otay Lakes Road and it's a nice little 9 mile run to the reservoir where you can take a break. I usually run along the lakeside and then turn around, come back to 94/Campo Road, and then continue EAST on 94.

Scenery

This is a stretch of highway running between the city of San Diego and along the US/Mexican border. There were some incredible fires here recently which makes for a stark, yet eerily beautiful and surreal landscape. There are creek beds, and then some nice canyon-like sections with steep drop offs ala the mountains. Something for everyone.

Road Quality

Most of this road is in good to great shape with portions of it being brand new. You may encounter highway construction delays as they continue to improve this stretch, but it's rare, and the delay is never more than 2-5 minutes. Most of this road is not just well paved, but groomed, and graded with lots of sloping, positive camber turns, as well as nice open stretches to throttle out. It's deep southern location, and parallel Interstate 8 make for very light traffic and free riding most of the time. Early mornings are particularly sweet, with gorgeous sunrises and crisp mountain-like air. The highway runs from city of San Diego east along the border until it connect with Interstate 8 in Jacumba. Worth the trip!

Roadside Amenities

Don't come down here to shop. But there are a bunch of great places to stop and eat on this road. In particular The Dulzura Cafe, The Portrero General Store and Cafe (my fave!), The Campo Diner, and Salsa Linda in Jacumba/Boulevard.

Ride starts off fairly pedestrian but quickly adds twists and turns with elevation gains up to 4000ft. The landscape was green which accentuated the rolling hills and valleys. You will pass through several small towns which tempts you to stop with the smell of grilled flesh.

Great ride. We went all the way down the 8 and then back toward San Diego on the 94. Plenty of curves and things to see. I went in December and it was pretty warm for the most part and plenty of good food at the Barret Junction Cafe, I would refer anyone in the are to this ride and restaurant.

Awesome road, very dangerous once you get to the cliffs, take it easy if you don't know the roads yet. Better to take it slow, then end up at the bottom of the cliffs, especially at the final stretch at Barret Junction.. Be very mindful of your positioning there. Other than that, GREAT sightseeing, lots of contrasting greenery, colorful cliffs, elevated hills and lots of variety in the road.

WARNING: Do be mindful of the potholes, they are there. Ride fun, Ride safe gentleman

A buddy of mine introduced me to 94 on a trip out west. I rented a gixxer and it was worth it. Roller coaster twisties, great pavement, and not a lot of cars made for a fast and fun ride.

This was a GREAT ride. My first inside of San Diego as I just got my bike finally. It was a WONDERFUL ride. Pretty easy with lots of twisties and the road conditions were amazingly excellent. Stopped right before Campo at a old museum alongside the road...was an old general store from 1890. $2 gets you in to see it..nice little stop.

This was the first road I EVER rode on. And now, four years and thousands of miles of riding experience, it still keeps me entertained. The road is great for sportbikes, sport-tourers or cruisers. There are a few spurs off the road that are also very fun for a quick zip... Sunrise Highway through the Laguna Mtn area into the town of Julian is a particular favorite.

I ride the 94 at least once a month and it's always a blast. There are a few good spots to eat and always a ton of other riders out having a good time.
