Map Overview

From the City of Oceanside’s Bicycle Master Plan (serving as the trail plan)

4.4 Mountain Bike and Trail Opportunities

 

  • There is an estimated 3,200 acres of open space and public land within the community in which three miles of natural surface trails are open to mountain bikes. [OTC is not sure where this 3 mile figure comes from. There is 0.45 miles at Calavera.]
  • There are currently no BMX tracks, velodromes or mountain bike centers within the community.
  • Coordinating with trail advocacy groups such as the San Diego Mountain Biking Association to site and develop a system that could include singletrack trails would be a benefit to the City.
  • Development of bike skills parks or pump tracks will also help encourage bicycle riding throughout the city.

The following seven sites have been identified as opportunities for bike skills parks and trail opportunities. (See Figure 4.5: Mountain Bike Trail and Bike Park Opportunities. P.4-12)
1. Ron Ortega Recreation Park (15 acres on Division Street and Brooks Street)

2. El Corazon (Oceanside Boulevard and El Camino Real)

3. Oak Riparian Park (Lake Boulevard and Ridge Road)

4. Tulle [sic] Canyon (off Benet Road)

5. Whelan Ranch Bird Sanctuary

6. City designated open space canyon behind Joseph Sepulveda (17 acres at the ends of Wooster and Colgate Drives)

7. West of Fireside Park (Fireside Street)

7.2.1 Allowable Land Uses Within Preserve Areas

Passive recreation that does not require conversion of natural habitats or facility construction. Passive recreation includes such activities as hiking, bird watching, or fishing. Creation and maintenance of trails for hiking, biking, or horse-back riding is conditionally allowed in some preserve areas, provided that they are sited to avoid sensitive resources and meet all other goals and guidelines of this subarea plan.
