This hike offers beautiful views of San Diego. It isn't well marked, so it may require some route finding at points. Make sure to download the map before heading out there! After rains it can be a bit washed out and muddy. In the hot months make sure to bring enough water and sunscreen as there is no shade and it gets very hot there. There are many car break-ins at the trailhead so make sure to not leave anything in your car.

Great hike. Good variation of incline and flat trail. Pretty rocky at times, especially on the hills, so wear good shoes. Dog loved it and saw a few other pups out there too. Views from the top are solid as well.

This hike had beautiful views and it was pretty empty. It’s very rocky though, so coming down is kind of scary (slip sliding off the edge at points is something I thought within the realm of possibilities) and as you get closer to the top, parts of the trail are not super well maintained and my dogs did not enjoy getting hit in the face with random plants/chaparral. For the most part, views at the top were worth it (and there’s lots of pretty views pretty much the whole way) but this is like a “did it once, never again” type hike for us.

Trail is cool with nice views on the way. There’s a cave and I went inside it. It’s some abandoned mining cave and it was pretty cool until I ran into a group of bats so I wouldn’t recommend going in unless you are very prepared for it. It was still super cool. The views at the top were 360 and awesome. Will come here again.

We only saw two other people and it was a nice quiet out & back. We only got to the top of the first peak due to time restraints but still a good one-hour hike. On the way back we found a little trail cut that was very steep but surprised us with a mine shaft. There were lots of loose rocks and steep parts that were difficult to go down so take it slow going downhill.

My pup loved this trail. And so did we. It’s beautiful views. And a great workout.

I would really prefer to drive out to the state park versus do this hike. Decided to turn around mid way up since it felt like you were jira hiking in a tundra. Views were good and could see the ocean from mid way up but there are better hikes.

Upon arrival I was doubtful as the mountain top looked pretty lame but embarking this hike was lovely and beautiful. Nice run back down the mountain

Easy start, steady incline and difficulty, mellows out to flat for a bit, good time to regain energy. Then an incline to the summit. plenty of pretty views the whole way up. Only crossed paths with 2 on a Sunday afternoon. Perfect for a little day hike. 2 hours at a casual pace.

Not a bad trail. Lots of dogs off leash, which is fine if you’re aware of the other hikers coming towards you. Trail was pretty easy incline. View was ok but pretty rocky and overgrown at the top. Easy trail to do with dogs and kids. My 9 year old was a trooper

Great trail! Gets your heart rate up going up, but nothing too strenuous. Brought my dogs and there was a nice shady spot up top to relax. Cave is off the trail. Saw very few people and the trailhead was easy to find.

Views on the summit did not disappoint. Used alltrails for directions. No restroom. Parking available for 12-15 vehicles. Rocky but others wearing running shoes did not have a problem. A little scramble to the summit. Incline manageable. Not a lot of hikers on a Saturday morning.

I really enjoyed this hike. Surprisingly, for an unpopular trail the parking lot was full. However, we had plenty of solitude throughout the hike and enjoyed the summit alone. There were some challenging steep areas, but I enjoyed the workout since I use these hikes to help me lose weight and get in shape. I loved the view and look forward to my return visit.
