    This as a wonderful hike and well worth the long drive out from San Diego.

    First off, Scott's Cabin itself is a bunch of logs laying on the ground and each other. And the hike up the mountain goes up, just up, there aren't many switch backs to ease the initial ascent. Beyond that this was a lovely trail with a view of orange turned ferns on a sloping hillside, a clean cut area and then some logs at Scott's Cabin to sit on.

    On the way back down, we came back down the same way we went up, we say a small group of deer along the trail!

    A really nice hike that culminates with a small weir/dam that pools the gentle stream that flows through the valley.

    Nice short trail with adjoining trails to other parts of the Doane Valley.

    A fun short hike in the foothills of Alvarado Mountain. The hike started walking up a poorly maintained dirt road along the S7 highway until we veered right and eventually were lead to the edge of a large field with scattered Oak trees. The golden grass waved with the when. We didn't see any cows, but it was evident they had grazed the area in recent months. We followed the trail to the left of the field until we found a really old and run down barn full of bullets holes and mostly rusted farming implements, (see uploaded picture).

    We then continued following the trail to the right of the barn into a wooded area complete with shade from the trees and a small stream. This part of the trail no longer used the farm road turning into a single file almost overgrown forest path back to the point of origination.

    Be sure to have your National Park Adventure Pass.
