hiking

Great hike, we were at the trailhead at 6:15, which is a must for a summer hike. It took us just over 6 hours for the out and back. Great views of Temecula and Vail Lake on the ascent and if you walk a bit passed the Magee-Palomar trail crossing at the top, you will get views to the west. (All the way to the coast on a good day) It was 98 degrees by the time we finished. We each brought 3 liters of water and it almost wasn't enough. Definitely bring a lot of water if you're trying to do the whole trail.

This is our first hike on the west coast. We went on a very hot day (97 degrees) and only made it 20 mins into the hike. Steep hike up with a pretty view. It definitely got our heart rates up. I would like to try this hike again on not so hot of a day. There is zero shade and lots of dust.

I really enjoyed it. Did 8 miles in&out.
Trail is very narrow slightly rocky so trail shoes is a must. Beautiful views. I would say half sun/shaded. Definitely worth the drive from Menifee.

12.8 miles is an understatement.....the full loop is 20.1 miles. Brings tons of water! My camelback was empty with 5 miles to go, a pretty uncomfortable feelings. Starting on the right trail it's a tad bit more challenging than the left. But nonetheless, my favorite local hike. Beautiful, scenic, and not too much trail traffic. Took 8.5 hours total.

Like all trails for walking or hiking, it is what you make of it and me, my wife and our dog had a great time. Nothing too challenging, and just an overall great walk to get the dog out and just to be outside in general. Look forward to making it a weekly or even daily trail to get our dog some exercise. Watch out for snakes during the summer, saw a couple of them today sun bathing near some trails.

not a "trail" but a sidewalk around a small lake. I've caught decent bass, 8 to 9 lbs here and there is a playground for children there - but not a trail for hiking, more of a park for a stroll

This is perfect for a romantic stroll or taking the kids to feed the ducks and play on a playground. This "trail" is part of a really cute neighborhood community center area. Very nice for a family picnic, after dinner walk or jogging trail.

The location on this map is completely wrong. Not very good we wasted an hour on that. Is this is the info I can expect from the app I'm on to the next app.

Great one night backpacking trail. Started up Dripping Springs Trail at noon. Camped at junction of Palomar McGee and Wild Horse Trail w/beautiful views. Went down Wildhorse as sun rose and finished at 11am.

The trails were primarily dirt roads. Trail maps did not distinguish between roads and hiking trails. Nothing special. Also, there was some occasional piece of trash on the trail. Nice views and always good to get outside, though. One cool part was a road/trail was blazed right on some ridge lines.

BRING LOTS OF WATER! You are constantly in the sun on this hike and it is a pretty steady steep climb. I brought 32oz and had to use it sparingly by the end. fantastic views and well worth at least hiking 5.2 miles to the peak and seeing the view of all the mountaintops, Vail lake, and much more.

There were even a few places to camp off the trail that have great views. I will be back

Excellent hike in Southern California with good elevation and excellent views. Seeing the TEMECULA valley from this perspective is unique. The best part is creating the initial peaks and dropping into the green valley before heading up to Palomar mountain. Amazing views not obtainable except on the trail.

This is NOT, I repeat, NOT difficult! The lake is beautiful and there is a park for the kids. The kids will love the ducks.

Not difficult at all, it's along the river, you can feed ducks, very pretty, I recommend it by yourself, or with kids, there is a jungle gym near bouquet.
