Fun easy morning trail

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 .

I really enjoyed this walk it was peaceful and not a lot of road noise for the most part my two small children enjoyed it as well. There isn’t a whole lot for them to do because all along the trail are signs for rattle snakes beyond the trail so I did not allow them to go stomping into the brush. And it’s kind of annoying that they allow cars to drive on the path to get to a fishing spot on the other side of the lake. I’m not a huge fan of walking so close to moving vehicles with me two small children. Despite all that it is still a very nice 5 mile walk very peaceful.

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.

I did this hike on a Tuesday afternoon and the trail was pretty empty. It's a great hike in the middle of the city. The first half is fairly flat with a few optional side trails, and the second half was full of some steep and challenging hills with great views from the top.

nice area. Some parts be very wary during rattlesnake season

Easy, but boring for me minus the suspension bridge

This was an amazing trail.. there are many different trails to take on.

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

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.

Best trail in SD by far :) definitely a hidden gem

The trail is currently under repair and closed due to significant damage. The whole Torrey Pines natural reserve is highly trafficked since it is near the beach. It is beautiful but expect a lot of people

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 to go on with kids. The parking lot is small and might have to wait for one to open. Also there are paddle boats and such for rent.

Scary but so worth it.

The place of after-lunch-walk for QComm employees.

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!

Beautiful, slightly out-of this-world trail for experienced risk takers. Three very sketchy places where “horizontal” part is 1-2” wide and made of loose sand. Cling to the wall with your belly but don’t grab what appears to be a good hold too hard – you may end up with a detached piece of sandstone in your hand. Prayers won’t help traction – wear good shoes. Although locals claim that doing it barefoot is the best (not for me). Don’t start the 1st narrow part (either way you go) if not sure, you may find yourself in an impossible situation. Consider yourself warned.

Good hike. Took on North and South together.

Nice easy paved road walk

For locals only unless you are experienced! The path is eroding away, so hike at own risk! Have fun though!!
