Cleveland National Forest encompasses 460,000 acres, mostly of chaparral, with a few riparian areas. A warm dry mediterranean climate prevails over the Forest. It is the Southernmost National Forest in California.

hardest hike I've ever been on the rock climbing was insane ..an the cave is amazing

It's good for trail running.

Fantastic trail when the wild flowers are in bloom. Highly recommend waterproof hiking shoes. Lots of offshoots so there is flexibility in how long you want to make it. On the way back around the 1 mile marker is a great place to stop on some flat rocks and dip your feet in the stream!

Easy and relaxing hike with great vista of Laguna Meadows and the Big Laguna Lake. Best time to check it out after the considerable rain experienced in San Diego lately.

Good, steep hike. Lotsa loose rocks. Exposed, no shade, but great time of year to do - April. Hiking poles were nice for the trip down. Lotsa butterflies at the peak, not at the "false peak". We did come across a big, fat red diamondback rattlesnake about .25 from the trailhead as we finished. Big ol' sucker! Been looking at that mountain for years and finally climbed it. Yeehaw!
