06/02/2018, we hike this steady uphill trek and instead of out-n-back, we made it a Loop to tallied up 7.57 RT hiking mileage and 1,598’ elevation gains! Saw four (4) crashes vehicles on the mountainside overlooking mighty El Cajon & El Capitan Mountain & Lake! Also, saw & caught/released a garter snake!

$2 per person fee
No dogs allowed
Very pretty view 98%
Easy with just a little elevation in parts.
Only 5 miles according to my Fitbit

always a beautiful place to go on a clear day.

Nice easy trail. Best to go in the morning, as it can get warm. Even if the temperature reading is not high, the sun feels hotter b/c of the altitude gain compared to San Diego.
I gave it 3 stars b/c there is nothing remarkable about this trail, it's just a leisurely walk on flat pavement.

I live a few minutes from here and love walking the road to the camp ground. It's nice and relaxing. Great views of the lake and mountains in the distance! :)

You can't walk/jog/run with your dog, even on a 6' leash!

Absolutely hate how it teases you with a short downhill before the grueling uphill climb. On the way back though it is one knarly epic ride!

One of my favorite walks that's easy and has some shade. The lake is beautiful and the bird life is abundant. They closed down the parking lot years ago so park outside the main gate entrance. You can make a loop on Friday thru Sunday. The rest of the week the main gate is locked and it's still a nice out and back.

The pathway is wide and level with a steady accent to Anderson Truck Trail road. It has been blocked of with large no trespassing signs 2/3 of the way so you can not longer make the loop. It's a great out and back Trail that is used often by mtn bikers.

This trail is a loop if you continue along the road after it closes to vehicles. you have a view of the lake for most of the hike, which is beautiful and peaceful.

You can pick up the trail off Puetz Valley Road at about Mile Marker 1.0 (a mile north of I-8). The map track begins at the freeway. Be aware that parking is a challenge but the trailhead is easily accessed. No gates at that entrance. A short distance in, there is an old, rusty metal barrier that was installed long ago to block the trail but there is a bypass around it. This is a very pleasant trail to walk.

I'm a local and love hiking this trail! I wake up, short walk to a fire road, all day walk through the mountains, and I'm still right by home. I love the watering hole on this trail too, but it is only seasonal. The tail isn't fenced off, ONE of its entrances is because it is on the owners private property and people were leaving trash and disrespecting their land.

Tried to get to trail, it is fenced and shows as private. It has a locked fence.

Tried to get here today and found out that the road has a gate and a 6 foot fence. Unless I was at the wrong place, this place is no longer accessible.

Not really the most exciting hike.

Great trail with a long fun down hill. If you start at the top "World Cup" there are plenty of rocks to launch off of and bypasses for the less brave or skilled!
