Visit SD often, and make it a point to spend some PM hours checking out this scene. Though hit or miss, when it hits, it couldn't be hotter here.

If it seems like an off night at first, hang around for awhile and events could take a 180. All types of guys, from boys to men, 1-on-1 or groups.

But be respectful and don't be a pest, if the vibe you're getting is exclusive. Your dude might be waiting behind the next tree. Go have fun!

Stopped by to check the scene while visiting the first weekend in February. It was nice, a warm night. Sucked three big black cocks and was fucked by two. Later met up with a tall stocky white dude with huge cock, sucked for about an hour. Fucking hot.

Got empty around Midnight though. Definitely gonna come back again in warmer weather or summer.

Still a good place for quick NSA suck/fuck action early evening into late night. Kinda slow the first night I went but the second night I got in hot three-way with a hot Black top dude on a bike and a tall ethnic dude with a Raiders cap. Met two other dudes with big dicks.

Go around the circle and down on the path, in the trees or behind the shacks.

I stopped by this place while visiting over New Years' weekend around 10 pm after seeing some CL postings for outdoor action. Not a lot of guys but I saw several tents. I wasn't sure if I was at the right place.

Saw a couple guys walking down the hill on the freeway side. I walked up on this Black dude fucking a tall dude in a Raiders cap and black hoodie over the log. I jacked and watched for about 40 minutes til another Black dude came by. He and the other dude fucked this dude for a while. They didn't have me join but it was hot watching this scene. Hooked up with a couple guys later. Guess I was in the right place.

I stopped by and saw the tall guy with the Raiders cap the following evening. I was banging on the hole deep and it really started to rain. This was a hot place for sure.

This place used to be legendary but it's not as busy as it used to be. It still had major potential though.

I stopped by late Friday night while visiting. There were about ten guys roaming around, a mix of old, young, Latino, black, and white. I watched a tall ethnic dude in camouflage pants get nailed by two black dudes behind the sheds. That was hot!

I got my cock sucked and sucked a couple before leaving.

Great night out at the Redwood Circle tonight, 9 pm. I watched a tall black dude bang on tall dude with a black hoodie and Yankee's cap behind the sheds next to the bowling lawns. I caught up with the bottom dude a while later and fucked all the cum loads out his hole and nutted another huge load. Fucking hot!

Hope to see him again this weekend.

I checked out Redwood Circle on a Friday a little after sunset. Not too busy when I arrived but it got busier as the night went on. There were guys from young and hot to older and heavier. Several guys cruised the trails towards the bridge.

I sucked a few guys and left with four loads in my belly! :-)

I met a tall masculine Puerto Rican bro in camouflage pants with clean deep hole here a couple times, after seeing CL postings. Hot!!!

I watched him get dicked down by a tall black dude with a huge cock behind the shacks by the bowling lawn another night. I was trying to get some but they left together.

I messed around with a couple other guys here. Not as busy as it used to be but still going!

Got a hot blow job from tall ethnic buddy with SF cap here Saturday night, then pulled his ass around and shoved my 10" thick cock deep up his ass as he squirmed his ass around. Went super deep and nutted deep inside. Definitely the action is still going at the Redwood Circle after dark.

Checked out the Redwood Circle area over the weekend. I saw some hot action late Friday and Saturday evening. Watched a tall lean masculine dude (Latino?) with camouflage pants and cap bent over a log getting his ass nailed and tore up by tall hot Black dude with a huge cock. Saturday evening he got two Black dudes tag team his ass again. Fucking hot.

I approached him later and got sloppy seconds. Was so horny from watching him I loaded up that hole in no time. Hope to get more next time I visit.

I went here two weeks ago around midnight on a weeknight. Having never "cruised" I thought I'd give it a try and there were a good amount of guys around, they were scattered all over just north of the bridge to just past Redwood Circle. First time doing this so I was nervous, and after seeing some very blatant displays and some not so attractive dudes I decided to walk a little further north and sat on a table with the attitude that I would either meet someone in five minutes or just walk home.

Within two minutes a guy came meandering up the pathway then stood over in a darker area. He came a little closer and was smoking a cigarette. I asked to bum one and he obliged, he then said he needed to piss. He walked about five feet away with his back toward me and then took his dick out. I made my move and walked over and saw his hot hairy hard on, not to mention his hot face and body. I started stroking him off and he started stroking me off. After a few minutes of giving each other hand jobs and rubbing, touching and kissing we both shot huge loads and parted ways. I was completely shocked by how hot this dude was, and how we both seemed to be on the same page without anything more than small talk.

I went back last night, which was a Friday around 1 am. There were guys everywhere, but not really any that I could see that were terribly attractive, and to be honest it seemed like there was less "action" than my previous visit and more "cruising," guys standing, walking around, smoking, etc. Anyway since I had luck near a quieter spot last time, I went back to the same spot, however I kept being followed by a skinny guy in white pants even though I kept trying to avoid him.

Eventually he got the message and I followed a guy I had passed by earlier to a secluded spot. We made small talk about what a nice night it was then he asked if I had any "bud" I said no but I had a cigarette, he took it and we smoked for a minute or two and talked, he asked me some random questions then said he had to "take a leak". He walked about fifteen feet from me with his back toward me, stood there for ten seconds then turned around, and said he felt much better and was going to keep exploring around. He was an attractive middle aged, middle eastern guy with longer hair tucked up into his hat. I got a really weird vibe from him, so I just let him walk off. As I walked the other direction intending to head home I was approached by a homeless guy, then saw two guys making out with their pants down under a tree. Passed by a really hot mid 20's Latino who looked back at me a few times, but by then I was over it and was just on a mission to get home. Pretty sure had I followed him we would've messed around.

From what I can tell from my two visits here, asking for a smoke, weed, or saying you need to "take a piss" seem to be code for "do you want to hookup?" or "are you looking?". As far as I go I don't mind the small talk before whipping 'em out, but I suppose theoretically speaking if a guy is standing there with his dick out, or asks you straight up if you want a blow job you can be pretty sure he's not vice, or an undercover, which can't be said for a dude who makes small talk with you then baits you to see if you bite.

With all that being said, on a night like last night it was so bright out due to the full moon that anyone in white clothing was glowing, and you could see them from a mile away. On another note, it seems that a lot of the guys here are not so discrete with their behavior in an area notorious for gay cruising. There aren't a lot of "areas" that haven't been cut back and I can only assume it's due to the fact the cops know what's going on here.

I would suggest being very cautious and smart about what you do if you visit this location. Like I said lots of guys, some hot, some not, some acting cautiously, and some throwing all caution to the wind. With all that being said I know SDPD is way understaffed but that doesn't mean they aren't going to randomly show up here one night, and if they catch you "with your pants down" it probably won't be so much fun.

Heads Up!
Police were patrolling on foot and stopping guys last night. Like the previous poster said, this involves handcuffs/questions/ID check/harassment and then they let you go if they don't have anything chargeable on you.

The most action seems to be happening just north of the Laurel Street bridge in the evening. There used to be plenty of bushes for people to go into. Now they have been mostly cut back. There is action here, and even the occasional hottie, and lots of average Joe's. There are still a few places but it's best to go away from the circle if you meet someone. Mostly you don't find hotties here anymore. Honestly, since the police started routinely going there, mostly it's older men, hustlers, homeless people, and drug addicts.

The police routinely stop people in this area after sunset. Often they will tell you the park closes at such and such a time. The park never closes. However, you cannot drive into the park on Balboa Drive after 8 and can not leave your car parked in the park past midnight. You are still free to park outside the park and walk in. As long as you do not have warrants, weapons, drugs, and are not caught fucking, you really haven't done anything wrong and they will harass you and let you go.

It was my first time going there last Friday. Me and 2 other friends went after we went to a club, and at first there were a couple of people who caught some eyes but we decided to keep walking. We sat on a bench and started to jack off to see if people would stop, but no one did. After that we walked by this one guy who brushed against me before he walked over to some bushes. I followed him and soon he was touching me all over. He got off and then walked off. My friends and I then saw 3 other people standing around and they approached us to play. One of the guys pulled down his pants and both of my friends fucked him on a table. I watched and jacked off. Had a great time, but I do not think I have the balls to go alone.

Was there the other night and sucked off two guys. I sucked another but did not finish him off. Very hot and very cruisy.

The trees have grown back with lots of new bushes. Action is increasing again in the old spot on the hillside.


Posted Sep 16 2007:
The public bathroom between Quince and El Prado has lately been the cruisiest spot. There's this guy who hangs out and sucks young guys' dicks all day. He's jittery about being caught but he gives good head.


Posted May 23 2007:
This place used to be almost always a sure thing. Place is lame now. They cleared out almost all the trees so there is zero cover. I wonder where everyone is going now.


Posted Apr 23 2007:
There was a recent report in the Gay/Lesbian Times about the hustlers and guys who frequent this area for sex.


Posted Jan 03 2007:
This place is still hot, especially on weekend nights! But week nights are also Ok.


Posted Nov 18 2006:
Still pretty busy. It's a great place to meet guys in their cars; however, just meet the guys there and go somewhere else to play. Watch out for the cops because this spot is very well known for being cruisy. The cops will leave people alone but will arrest any blatant sexual behavior. Avoid the Tijuana hustlers and occasional meth-head teenagers. There's a parking lot next to the tall flag pole which gets a lot of guys parked in there cars. There's a cruisy toilet near the stop sign but be cautious. There are also trails on the east side of this fruit loop which are active at night.


Posted Jan 29 2006:
A great cruising spot. Friday night at dusk was very active. I had a young Latino guy on his knees in front of me right after I got there and as I was leaving I caught eyes with a Vietnamese guy. I had to go back and fuck him in the bushes. Definitely recommended.


Posted Oct 05 2005:
I go there quite often to suck men off and get my ass taken care of. Last night I had one guy take me down one of the trails and fucked my mouth. My pants were pulled down and my panties were showing when I felt a hard cock push inside of me with no lube, but I was wet and ready for it. He blew his load deep as the other was filling my mouth. It was hot! By the time I left I had seven loads of cum in me.


Posted Jun 04 2005:
The action gets better once the sun sets. I got a nice blowjob and came back a few hours later and found a tight hole to fuck. All ages, sizes and types hanging around. Pretty much any time works.


Posted Jun 26 2004:
Heads Up!
Undercover and vice cops run stings monthly, and they patrol the hills and bushes on bike, foot and horseback.


Posted May 02 2004:
On Monday the cops went through the park and asked people what they were doing and if they were ‘in trouble’.


Posted Mar 30 2004:
Heads Up!
About four cops were searching on foot with flashlights around Midnight Monday night. I was in the middle of some very hot action and split when I saw a bunch of lights approaching. A couple of them went down the embankment searching the trails. I did not see a police car so I don’t how they got there.


Posted Jun 26 2003:
This is where the action is. It’s a good mix of fit guys too, and lots of discreet places to go fuck. For a horny college student like me, this is a great place to fucked bareback-style by some dudes with some really big cocks.


Posted Jan 18 2003:
It was recommended to go there after 9 pm when things get pretty busy. Just walk back by the trees and have at it. There are lots of guys walking around and standing around. I wore me some daisy duke shorts there and got picked up by three guys. One sucked me off while the other two were taking turns fucking me in front of all the guys walking around. We put on a damn nice show, I might add. I can?t wait to get back there. The police wont mess with you until the park closes, and then you can just park on the street and walk back to the cruise area.


Posted Jan 06 2002:
Police are monitoring Marston Point "Fruit Loop". They are using plain clothes undercover cops. These cops are young and quite well built. Be aware, the cops will try to entrap you. If you are interested in someone there, ask them to meet you at a coffee shop.
