Palomar directions from Valley View
« on: 09/10/17 11:54AM »
Hey guys sorry to ask this but I am at Valley View Casino out in San Diego County and my friend has a Mustang convertible that we thought we'd go for a Cruise when I realize that we are right next to Palomar Mountain so I thought why not go up the mountain.

The only thing is I can't really figure out egps or Google Map directions on the way to the twisty Road up the mountain or just drive around nearby.

Anyone have a quick suggestion we're probably going to head out after we hit up the pool so not for another hour or so

PS I never knew how close Palomar was to the casino so maybe we could organize a OC Moto casino and Kenyon day haha

Getting there from Valley View is easy.

Drive north on S6, when it intersects with 76 go east. After 5 miles, you are greeted with a sign pointing left to go up Palomar (S6). From there you can go up that road (it has turn outs) until you get to the stop sign.

At the stop sign the general store, and the observatory are left. To go down the mountain, turn right. It is a nice smooth ride back down to 76.

much thanks! very easy directions and we enjoyed the trip!

we started off here



...at Valley View casino...admiring the view. Friend has a convertible, so I tell her - you want to take a cruise to the top?

we followed your directions and took it pretty slow



it was nice going from the 95 degree heat at the casino to 77 out in the mountain forest

drove up to the observatory, checked it out, then came back down while stopping for photo ops



did not see many bikes at all...maybe it was too late at 3:30pm?



super fun...wish I had the vstrom and a good set of PR4 tires!

Glad it worked out!

I really do love that place. I am wanting to buy a home there within 5 years, work permitting. I mostly work from home as is, so if I can severe the cord entirely.. I will :)

We attended a wedding reception out in the Pala Valley near there. I could definately warm up to buying some ranch property out there to have as a  get away from it all place.

I'm here to tell you that place has gotten more populated compared to 10 years ago. The Casino traffic really ruined the fun of getting to and from the better riding roads.
