An easy hike in an area with blooming flora to enjoy. At the beginning of the hike there are signs that give you information about the area. There are a few loops or hikes you can do in the preserve so you can make your hike as long or as short as you'd like.

I don't know how this is rated as easy. Especially if you climb up the other side which is steep and exposed. Pretty, down in the ravine.

Twice hiked Hellhole; March 26, 2016 & December 19, 2015 and enjoyed the terrain with a great group of friends! Both times we racked up 9.50 plus hiking mileage and each time we reached Rodriguez Peak geological mark

Complete the 3.8 mile loop, first 3/4 mile is down hill which means the last return is 3/4 mile up hill. This is more of a moderate hike than easy. Overall, worth the drive out to Valley Center. It was overcast, which was nice.
