Rocky, not particularly well marked. Nice views, waterfall
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.
main trail ok. go off the main trail and be prepared for a rocky walk. by the way, bees bees and more bees!!!!!
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.
Friday was a great day go hiking I did the 3.8 mile hike
