It’s very relaxing

This trail was wonderful! May have got turned around, but the view was prettier with each turn. Bring extra water and the power lines can be used as a landmark to keep you on your path!

Beautiful views...moderately steep and rocky on the way up but nice downhill .

fun challenging trail. one of the longer funnier trails in mission trails park. bring some water and have fun the rocks at the end can be a burn.

This was awesome! Well marked and stunning views. I felt very safe.

What an awesomely stunning surprise! I was here for a conference and thought I’d check these trails out. Great views and well marked trails! Fantastic!

Fun hike, pretty strenuous but well worth it. The stairs and rock scramble to the top was the most rewarding. Bring a rain jacket weather can turn quickly.

I haven’t actually done this trail yet, but I want to bad! I’m fairly new to the area and a little worried about venturing in the “back woods” by myself. The only daylight time I really am available right now are Wednesday and Thursdays. If anyone (or many) are interested in teaming up to run Mission Trails or any other in San Diego area shoot me an email: warfitnessgrp@gmail.com. Hopefully there’s others that have a open schedule on Wednesday and Thursday’s!

Can do this in tennis shoes when dry. Moderate trail for altitude. Trail not clearly marked if going on west side initially. You might end ip under powerlines for a bit if you take the wrong trail.

My personal favorite of the mission trails for hiking.

Great alternative to Cowels Mountain! A little less steep, quiet, less people, and wider trails.

Great and challenging hike, especially going up the stairs towards the end. Make sure to pay attention to the signs or you might just miss the peak. So many different routes to take to get you to the top!

Nice mix of easy walking and some inclines. There wasn’t much water throughout but the beautiful rock formations and variety of flat open spaces and bush laden trails was totally worth it! While there were a fair amount of folks at the trail, the space is large enough that it was still peaceful.

Good hike. Took on North and South together.

we completed this trail in 2017. highly recommend long pants abd hiking poles. lots of rattlesnakes.

Great views. Easy to moderate hike with many loose rocks. We explored a few off shoot trails that were poorly marked to the east.

Excellent easy to moderate

This is NOT even close to 6 miles. It was 4 for me, but I included a long walk down Father Junipero Serro road. How strange! This is definitely an easy hike and pretty dry right now :/ The oaks are always fun to walk under and the rocky areas are worth climbing. Not my favorite hike ... but it’s local. I added the screenshot of the miles in the photo section (if anyone was curious)

This trail is awesome. Better then cowles.

I like to do this one for a run or walking with dogs/ mom

Great when there has been enough rain to keep the creek flowing and grasses are green. Ok when it’s dry.

This whole area has a lot of hiking options, obscure back trails, and spots to post up. it was really nice to see the large amount of flowing water.

loved the stairway to haven

gotta love the steps near the end! great workout and great view.
