San Diego’s Stowe Trail Permit Process: 4/26/19 Update

The expiration date on my Stowe Trail permit was today’s date, so I drove out this morning to get a new one, this being the 3rd time. Much to my surprise, they had the new permit ready in 15 minutes, meaning the 10+ day wait period is now a thing of the past.

A few things:

  1. You still need to fill out the application form and waiver, no matter if you currently have a permit. Go here to get the documents (print and fill them out) and have them ready upon arrival to Miramar: 
  2. I had my passport, but still had to fill in the Social Security number and Driver’s License info on the application form;
  3. I waited while they did the background check;
  4. After 5 minutes or so, I was called up for a new photo;
  5. Another 5 minutes or so and I was out the door with my new 1-year Stowe Trail permit;
  6. It’s still FREE (no $ needed).

Super easy. Go get a permit and go ride!
