Walked all around the park, upper and lower trails. Some nice overlooks with both paved roads and trails. Good bathroom facilities around the park and easy parking.

Great trail - super hot! Not too much shade but has a great views.

Awesome! The dogs got overheated so we had to carry them

really nice trail

This is a very fun trail and so far one of my favorites. The coast to crest trail can be linked to del dios gorge trail and santa fe valley trail. While there are a couple of technical sections on the Lake Hodges trail, but nothing overly difficult, overall this trail flows well and is very fun and is a great ride for all levels.

really nice hike.....cactus were all in bloom and trail was nice and wide. view of the lake made it very easy to hike 6 miles!

Always fun to try new trails in North County. This was a pleasant surprise. Moderate level hike is an accurate assessment. Well marked trail, nice scenery along the way, so did not get bored. Plan on hiking it again soon.

Fun! Beautiful spring flowers.

Good mountain bike trail, was easy.


This is a nice little walk/hike. We went about midday, apparently after school is out it gets a little crazy. But with rope bridges and viewing platforms, it's a nice little spot

Nice out and back run.

pretty boring. mostly fire roads until you cross the rusted iron pedstrian bridge.

We're always looking for a good trail to do with our kids, ages 5 and 4. We were only able to do about 2.5 miles out and then back of this trail before we had to turn around. The kids especially loved the creek crossing. It's challenging in some parts, but mostly because you have to watch out for mountain bikers. Otherwise, it's a great trail. Lots of birds and scenery to enjoy. Everyone we met on the trail was very nice.

This is a good trail for folks that want to get out and go for a walk/hike. I went on New Year's Day. Downside...bikers. Not that there were a lot of them but that they didn't let you know when they were coming up from behind and many went by to close and very fast.
Note to self: if going to do this again it will be on a weekday.
Once you get back in the trail it is a visually good trail. Enjoy.

Great view, good for dogs, but the trails are very narrow and a lot of people bike here so there's a lot of chances of unsuspecting accidents. We had to move many times out of the way for speeding bikers with our two dogs. There's parts of the trail thats on a narrow ridge, so trying to make room for the bikers is very tough, especially with dogs.
