One of best parks in San Diego County

Great hike! Lots of hills and different terrains. Some in the shade and some in the sun. Lots of different trails you can take so take a photo of the map before you start or take a copy with you.

This trail was pretty easy. Beautiful day in February. The trail was clear and even with all the rain lately, it was mostly dried out.

Fun trail with a great reward at the top. I took the botanical trail on the way down and was surprised at the creek crossing, although there were signs for it. I wasn't prepared to step over the rocks through the creek, but it was a nice little challenge.

Worth the hike up if your in the area.

Once you make it up here you might as well circle around the lake and see what's below, and that does include Lake Hodges.
