I actually did the North Fortuna hike, I don't know why does the Visitor hike popped up..anyway this hike was a moderate hike. Really easy to feel like you are in a maze:-). Some reviews said there is a waterfall- there is no waterfall at all. Bring lots of water some food. Today was really green all the way, it was beautiful. Only problem that it is close to the highway so some part of the hike was not so nice for me..so far it is a nice cardio hike.
A fun little shady hike along the creek.
Great hike when you have limited time and want to enjoy the San Diego outdoors - mixed terrain of dirt, rocks & gravel with a spot to see the San Diego River
Easy, but you can add to it by detouring to the grinding rocks and then also to the Deerfield trail. I've also gone from the visitor entrance to the grinding rocks and then hiked the climbers loop and finished the visitor trail...the visitor loop alone is a great easy hike to introduce new people to the trails and beauty of MTRP.
Great little loop
Great little hike that wasn't super packed.
Short easy trail not much to it.
This is nice if you just want to get out and move for awhile. The trail isn't hard at all, and it's nice to stop by the visitor's center and take a look around.
