Great hike! It's far less crowded than Cowles and a lot more challenging. There are to peaks at the top both of which give you an amazing view. This is one of my go to hikes when I want a challenge near San Diego and don't get up early enough to beat the crowds.

Not too hard but good stair exercise.

This was a great hike! My daughter and I started the 5 peak challenge today and we chose this one to start. It was beautiful! We had to take our shoes off to walk thru the waterfall in the beginning which wasn't hard but the water was nice and cold and she loved it. Such a great thing to share with her. Then we started up and over. The problem we found was that the trails were in many directions and they are very difficult to navigate thru. Lucky for us we found people to help guide us at every turn or we would have been lost. So my only complaint would be that better signage would be great. But the views and trails themselves were in great shape and magnificent! 1/5 done challenge. Next week number 2. My 7 year old is very excited to share her pictures and get her pin.
