The line down the spine is the one I like. It is more committing but lines you up better for the drop that comes next. You can also ride to the left of it. There are 2-3 more lines behind me and to my right, out of the shot that are more of stair-step rolls. You're right the trails are much more worn in than years ago...blown out, multiple lines around anything hard, 8-10+ feet wide in places where it used to be singletrack. Except spots like this where riders are hemmed in by large rocks...

I hear the French have a recipe for a very tasty goathead omelet. Takes mucho preparation, though.

I rode in Cuyamaca yesterday. I parked on the edge of hwy 79 just south of School Camp. At the end of the ride, I was riding south from School Camp back to my truck on the wrong side of the highway so I could face traffic. I saw a large truck with trailer heading towards me and thought it would be safer to leave the highway and ride the weeds for a few yards. I found the motherlode of goat-heads by the side of the road.

I found another such lode on a traffic island at Midway and Barnett as I was riding home one night.

Also the shoulder off
Highland rd. in RB/Escondido wil net you a dozen or so, real quick.

It turns out the "Puncture Vine" weed loves to grow in the dirt margins right next to paved paths and roads. Quite convenient, eh?

Could you imagine how much it would suck to be a soft footed Coyote around that shit? At least we just get these thorns in our shoes and tires.
