More trails and rock-climbing opportunities than you can shake a stick at! Trails for every level of ability, walking, running, hiking, biking and skating. Bring your kids, bring your dogs, bring your grandparents, there is something for everyone here. This park is a photographer's delight and is accessible 24/7. There's plenty of wildlife here for birdwatchers to deer-stalkers (but, please, no weapons, this is not a hunting ground). Be sure to bring your Camelback and snacks, this is wilderness in the middle of suburbia.

This could get VERY busy so plan to go early. Esp if it's a summer month you'll want to beat the heat. This is super dog friendly but a few dogs have died on this hike do to heat exhaustion- everyone please be aware of the ability of your dog. If it is a bulldog breed, IT IS NOT A HIKING DOG. Hiking this mountain gives you a view of the highest point in San Diego, highly recommended!!! If it's not super crowded you can get this done very quickly and it's totally worth it. Grab an acai bowl across the street when you're done!
