5 Peaks Shuttle Trail is a 12.1 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near San Diego, California that features a river and is only recommended for very experienced adventurers. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
Overall pretty awesome loop. Just be forewarned there is a BUNCH of bushwacking required once you get past Pyles Peak, especially the last 1/3 mile or so. Make sure you have the app downloaded to help with navigation.
Great hike/run. Bagging all five peaks in one day is the best way to truly see mission trails. Start early! You can link all five by hiking on road from the Santee side near the campground to the backside of cowles mountain.
