Cholla-Mathis Loop
This is a fun, intermediate ride taking in the entire perimeter of the park. Following the length of the ridge, this ride gives you a great view of the park, surrounding hills and ocean.

Starting at the main entrance, ride along the paved service road and then parallel to it for about a mile. The entrance to Wood Canyon is marked by a right off of the pavement to the dirt service road. The entrance also has a ranger station and porta-potties. Ride about 3 miles up through the canyon to the end where Cholla trail starts up to the ridge. Ride up Cholla trail to the top, take a left and follow the ridge line for about two miles to Mathis Trail. Head down Mathis till you reach Wood Canyon again. Turn right head down Wood Canyon to the ranger station, then make a left and head back to the car.
