Mount Palomar

1 minute read.

This climb to the world-famous Palomar Observatory is nothing but hill. The 13-mile ascent is for fit cyclists looking for a challenge, an awe-inspiring view from the top, and a screaming downhill.

It's something of a San Diego tradition for cyclists to tackle this 6,140-foot peak. The ride will be memorable, especially if you warm up along scenic Route 76 before beginning your summit bid. 

 

Keep in Mind stretch before your ride and hydrate. Bring plenty of water and nutrition so you don't bonk. Let us know how you did share your ride with us on our Strava page.
