The Bike Park
Sweet water bike park was the first major bike part built in San Diego county and arguable the most impressive in terms of numbers and variety of features.
The bike park offers three progressive jump lines, ranging from beginner to expert, a small kid’s section, three pump tracks, a perimeter trail, and a skills zone with wooden features and rock gardens.
The park features several large tabletop jumps where riders can catch serious air – and pay the consequences when it goes poorly. Near the lower portion of the park, there are large wooden berms that are part of one of the flow tracks.
For less adept riders, there are plenty of mellower features to build and test your skills on. Sweetwater offers bermed pump and flow tracks for riders of various skill levels.
Because the park is made of sculpted dirt, it is typically closed for a while after rains to allow it to dry out and be groomed.
Helmets are required while riding the park. Ebikes and dogs are not permitted.
