    Did a pretty cool ride on Saturday. Our local group SDMBA is working on a huge trail project with the Forest Service, and decided they should be good neighbors and go knocking next-door, which is a huge private ranch called Rancho Guejito. It is the largest intact Mexican land grant left in California and has never before allowed public access. Somehow after talking to management a deal was reached to hold a MTB event there for around 250-300 people. The ranch even chartered a helicoptor to take people on tours. The event went well, so hopefully they will allow more events in the future. This one was well worth setting aside a day for.



    There are no trails on the property so we'd be only riding fire roads. But with the chance to check this place out, no one cared.




    Entrance to the ranch proper




    After a solid climb to a plateau we had a long descent




    Bit more climbing. The place is summed up by green grass, boulders, and oak trees




    The burned out Anderson homestead, built 1870 and intact until 2007 when a utility-caused fire raged through the area. The ranch was sure to mention that on the sign nearby.




    There were great views all around including Palomar Mtn, both Black Mountains, Cuyamaca Peak, Iron Mtn and Mt Woodson.




    Turning back north we rode through some cool forested canyons on the climb back to the ranch area




    Checking out the remains of the Maxcy winery dating back to 1852. It was one of the first commercial wineries in California





    The heli tour was cool. Did that before the ride which gave a good idea of things to look out for later




    Views of the ranch. Part of the trail network we're working on is on the far high ridgeline where you can just make out a patch of trees on top, on the right
