I went for my first time in the morning and I was actually amazed how beautiful it was. Great morning workout!
Nice trail with great views of San Diego but lots of people on the weekends (week days are better)
Pretty nice and clean trail. Nice rock formations. Small peak. Great workout.
Fun hike, great rock formations. Nice breezes.
Fun hike. Go earlier or later in the day. Not too much traffic, but still a popular place to go get a quick work out, with great views at the top.
Great hike to do alone or with a family. Beautiful views throughout.
What a great hike. Beautiful views and it was nice and cool when we went. Dogs everywhere but it was perfect. the trail itself was a good, nice work out.
Love love love this hike, never gets old and the view from the top are always gorgeous. Just do it.
On a Monday morning the Peak trail was pretty crowded, but side trail to Ramona Overlook was empty. I did a loop of peak, overlook, wild horse trail - took me 4 hours including dawdling and eating. Beautiful scenery. Absolutely loved it. Bring water!!
Great hike today! Starting at the Iron Side Trailhead parking area and going on the Iron Mtn Trail to the top was very nice! Moderate difficulty, coming down and taking right at Ellie Trail made for a wonderful longer hike with more difficulty! We learned starting with taking a left at Ellie trail will definitely be a harder hike eventually peaking top at Iron Mtn peak! Next time for sure! Next time for sure!
Great views from top. Very exposed so bring cover (i.e. Hat), sunscreen, and plenty of fluids. Vet crowed especially on weekends.
BEAUTIFUL morning hike. recommend run rise hours to catch the beauty. Worth it
Great hike, challenging & great views
Great Hike awesome views!!!
