Grind up Pine Creek Road to the intersection with a dirt road, continue down dirt road approx. 2 miles, trail is on the right (left will take you into Rancho Cuyamaca State Park via East Mesa). Climb up trail to Champagne Pass, from the pass continue down the trail always staying to the right at any intersection until reaching Noble Canyon Trail.
