Beautiful easy hike, great for kids and beginners. Go into the town of Julian after for some famous apple pie and ice cream, makes it a great outing!

Holy Cow, this trail is so dangerous. Very loose footing on the steep sections resulted in my wife slipping, falling,and getting a couple of bruises. I nearly fell. This thing needs to be closed and fixed before someone else gets hurt.

Nice moderate trail. Remnants of Cedar Fire everywhere. Cool old growth forest near the end.

My wife and I hiked the Desert View Trail on a beautiful New Years Day. At 2.25 this is a very scenic loop. Good elevation gain to "Glen's View" for great views of surrounding peaks and the desert. Foliage has recovered in the years since the last fire, chaparral is about 2-3 feet tall.
