Written Directions

Start at the western end, the intersection with Pomerado Rd near the I-15 in Rancho Bernardo. Follow the road northeast to the tee with CA 67 towards Ramona.

Scenery

The road goes past california's numerous avocado and citrus orchards, with views of the rolling east county hills. Expansive villas and small farms line this two lane road.

Drive Enjoyment

Do you like roller coasters? This road has dips, twists, blind corners and fast straights to put a grin on a sport rider's face. Cruisers may have to take it slower to avoid scraping hard parts in the tight stuff. Road surface is good, with only a few spots that sand might be tracked onto the road from the farms. Little traffic during the weekdays, but on weekends there might be quite a few bikes and sports cars.

Tourism Opportunities

There really isn't any services along this stretch of road. The main towns of Rancho Bernardo and Ramona are a short ways away at either end for food and gas.

Fun local connector road from Interstate 15 to Ramona, which is one of the gateway routes to the best San Diego County mountain rides.

A friend recommended this route home one evening and as soon as I turned on Highland Valley, it was like stepping into a different world. Tons of crazy twists and turns and plenty of options once you reach the end. I decided to continue straight onto Die Rd, past Barona Casino and down Wildcat Canyon. It got a bit hectic there as I'm a new rider, it was dark, late and there was lots of traffic and several turns marked 15 MPH every few minutes. I felt like I was a little out of my comfort zone, so I'd classify this as a route for more intermediate riders. Nonetheless, I had a blast and want to go back during the daytime to tackle this one again.
