A beautiful canyon just east of San Diego, California If you are hiking after recent rains, the landscape will be green and lush, but also make the creek crossings (3 total) treacherous. The trail continues past the recorded route if you wish to extend the hike. The whole area between Dulzura and Jamul outside San Diego is beautiful. Rolling green hills with steep rocky peaks here and there.
Loved this trail! So much fun, perfect amount of uphill for me. It has beautiful shade and lots of green around. We saw a waterfall which was awesome and had to cross a creek so be prepared for that.
A great hike if you stay by the trees on the eastern side. Beautiful scenery and lots of shade.
Beautiful hike. However this is not moderate. It is very easy
I did this hike in May while there was still some water in the creek, and have also made bike runs through here in the summer coming from Honey Springs Truck Trail looking for geocaches. There's always cool shade so a relaxing experience is possible in summer, but I would say this area is best experienced while it's still green after the rains.
Beautiful, lush and green! Quiet and serene, easy to moderate but worth the views and nature. Saw just a handful of hikers and bikers! Great time with the bestie and perfect way to start up the new hike year! Get out and enjoy it!
Great experience. Easy initially with varying inclines and degree of difficulty approaching the midway point. Will definitely do again at some point!
