I live in the neighborhood. Easy trail to get up and down several times after work. Views of Temecula Valley from high vantage point. Nice to have in backyard, but certainly not worth traveling to. Go to Santa Rosa if you want to hike in Temecula Valley area.
Best hike in Murrieta
I live 15 minutes away from this hike. I hike it and run it regularly. The best part of the plateau is that there are many hikes short and long easy and moderately difficult making it very accessible for hikes of all ages and experience it. If you can make it to the adobes its worth it.
Bring water and sun block.
I thought it was fun. Small trail, more difficult in that the path was rocky and uneven, which made it fun for me. If you do want to see wild life, then do this trail. However, if you are afraid of snakes or crawling creatures then don't do this trail. I thought it was fun! I did see some poison oak but it was not near the trail.
