This trail is easily accessible and available to walk all year round, excepting the visit of occasional winter storms. It has a sunny inviting atmosphere. Listen to your feet crunch rhythmically upon the decomposed granite path. A place to sit and contemplate on beautiful granite boulder outlooks, high above a verdant stream bed. It is a welcoming gem amid the wild chaparral of the San Diego County mountains.
This is a great trail for the family, it will take about 30 minutes to do the loop, but if you want a hard trail you can follow the picnic benches and go down to the San Diego River.
