- Trail UpdateOpen Again-I was just there 11-11-05 and the trail was open.
- Trail UpdateDue to the Forest Closure Order, this area is temporarily closed to the public.
- Trail UpdateDevil's Punch Bowl-Sorry for the confusion Clinton, the directions to the waterfall are a little tricky. I drove to the trailhead myself not too long ago and got a little lost for a moment with my own directions. If anyone, including Clinton, is looking for a riding partner out there or just wants directions... email me at email@example.com

- Trail UpdateWhere's The Trail-My friend and I decided to try one of these trails as both people have written make them sound diffrent so I'm guessing there are 2 different trails. The directions suck and took us on a long drive and leading us in a loop before finding what we think is the trail. I took the 67 all the way to Julian and made a right on Cedar Creek Falls then another right on Eagle Peak. The other guy doesn't know what comes first and leads you on a huge circle that gets you no where. If it was the trail where your suppose to follow a fire road for quit some time on a fast downhill, then there's suppose to be a parking lot as described by someone else. We followed the road for a long ways but was never seeing a parking lot that then hooks up to a trail. It's a long fire road ride that is pretty boring but better be experinced for the fast pace ride. You have nothing to look forward to but just a long up hill back to where ever you park. Better take a truck on the trail and see where it goes instead of riding a bike at the top of the fire road.

- Trail UpdateDevil Falls Trail-I rode this trail a whole lot last year. I drive into Julian on HW 67, then at the T-section I make a left into the town on Julian. Once I drive through most of Julian, there is a 4-way intersection that you need to go left on--sort of taking you out of Julian. You follow that road, and you will have to make two lefts. One is Eagle Peak Road, and the other is Cedar Creek Falls. I can't remember which one comes first, but you will tell once you see them. Nonetheless, the second left turn you make should eventually turn into a dirt road winding all over the place and coming downhill into the outskirts of Julian and Romona--awesome views! The road dead ends at the bottom where there is a parking lot for hikers and bikers. Take the entrance on your left and it is ALL DOWNHILL from there. It is very bumpy, and rocky all the way down for approx. 4+ miles. Very, very, very fun. At the bottom, take a left for some relaxing, you will eventually have to pick up your bike and walk across the rocks, but there is a nice big waterfall with jumping rocks, etc. If you go there just after winter, the water in extremely deep and you can rest assured that you won't hit bottom if you decide to take a dip. In fact, I don't know anyone who has seen or touched the bottom.lol. Anyways, I recommmend relaxing there, and then building those legs on the ride back up the hill the way you came. Good trail!

- Trail UpdateFrom Julian get on your bike and ride back down highway 78 about 1 mile 'till you reach Pine Hills Rd. Turn left. After about another mile, turn right onto Eagle Peak RD. Within 15 minutes you'll be in the dirt. Be prepared for approx 14 miles of mostly downhill through some of the counties wildest country. Watch out, there is an occasional vehicle on this dirt road. Near the bottom, there is a gate across the road, its ok to go through. Keep going another 1.5 miles, then take the left fork that leads to the top of Cedar Creek falls. If you want to really abuse yourself, don't go left, instead go all the way to the bottom, cross the San Diego river and ride/push all the way up the hill to San Diego Country Estates. In either case, this is an out and back ride, Julian is your final destination. The specs: 43 miles, 5000+ feet elevation gain. Bring lots of water!!!
