Great hike today. First time on this trail and I will definitely have to do It again.

Really nice trail, well maintained. Please remember to clean up after your dog! Not too many people on a chilly January morning.

Nice trail, beautiful view from the chairs, and not many people!

Pretty trail, good incline. Great views but the chairs at the top were the reason we went lol

Good workout with the pup!

Lovely, well-maintained trail. Very exposed so bring lots of water. Stay left at the trail intersection to make you way up to the ridge where they are some chairs to rest on and take in the views. Once you hit the main ridge line, look for the chairs to the right so as not to miss the tiny path up to them.

Great hike- took entire family-trail is becoming more popular thus isn't as brushy as in the past- obvious trail maintenance -Thank you! Beautiful views of Valley of the Sun to the east (Ramona and beyond) can see ocean to the west as well - chairs at top a a nice place to experience an amazing panoramic view

Good trail, (standard SoCal conditions—so if it’s not a cool day it’ll be hot. No shade). The two chairs at the top are fun, and make for a brag worthy photo to share with friends. Technically the trail goes .2 miles further than the chairs, but the view is the same.

Perfect place to train for outdoor running with minimal incline.

Awesome trail. Wear pants or something because it's pretty overgrown the last mile or two of the trail. Once at the top, you have to jump on some rocks to get the best view. Literally panoramic views of escondido, ramona, and everything else around there. Bring binoculars because there's a ton of birds (if you're into that).

Good uphill climb. Lightly used trail. Lots of brush on the path. The chairs at the top are cool and have a much better view than the end of the trail.

Moderate trail... trail slightly over grown in some areas so have to walk through plants. Saw a huuuge rattlesnake so beware! Got beautiful views at the top. The chairs were a fun break and made for unique photos. We ran on the way down after enjoying our time at the top. About 2 hours without rushing.

Take the left fork to get to the sweet chairs at the top! Literally no one on the trail, it was magnificent! Some hot spots, some rather cool, bring a light jacket! Also the trail is thin and there are lots of flowers encroaching one it so highly recommend pants/high socks!

While this trail is marked for Mountain Biking, there are signs all over saying otherwise. This is NOT a cycling-friendly trail! I was pretty bummed to discover this after driving out, but I found some other fun rides in the same area, so not a total loss. I'll just have to come back and hike it sometime.

Good place ⛰

Great views. Up up then down down. Some erosion on trails. All around great hike.

Easy to follow trail with some great views at the top! The trail is overgrown in some places, so I suggest wearing pants to avoid scratching your legs. There's also a fallen tree across the trail within the first half mile, but it's easily navigable. Really great hike

This was a cool, moderate strenuous hike, especially the pair of lawn chairs on top of a massive boulder at the Southeast Peak and the peak log at the Southwest Peak. Racked up a total of 6.51 RT hiking mileage with a total 1,177 ft. elevation gain. First, we trekked to the Southeast Peak, then did about-face and saddle-backed towards the Southwest Peak to sign the peak log. Disappointed we didn't locate a geological benchmark, but the peak log is as good to make it an official hike after signing it.

it's a pretty casual stroll. No scenic view though.
