I love this trail - but only in the winter months. it is wide open with no shade so definitely something to hike in the cooler weather. dog friendly and again in cooler weather. you start at a park/rv camp and hike about 2.5 miles before you get to the Sweetwater Wildlife Preserve. from there you have several trail options that loop to Cactus Hill. in the rainy season the hills are like bright emeralds. you will see lots of local birds, and i have aslo seen deer and coyote at dusk. From this trail you can continue up to summit Mother Miguel, follow along Mount Miguel, or head out across the preserve to Rancho San Diego.

Good and quick hike for the whole family.

Good work out and nice view

It was a great view. I took my dog and he had so much fun. Be aware of mosquitoes.

Lots of confusing side trails. Fun overall experience.

Now one of my favorite trail!!

Beautiful, loved every step of this trail!!!!! Go just go!!!!!

Great hike, I didn't do the whole thing because I was kind of worried about how hot it was getting. I brought 2 big bottles of water and it wasn't enough. Please bring plenty of water, and nice big hat and plenty of sunblock.

Nice very clean quiet

Sweeping hillside views, a nice view of the lake at the top of the loop, a couple nice inclines, good for dogs, horses and mtn bikers on trail & only saw three other people on a Saturday afternoon.

This was a decent hike. The scenery was meh but this could have been due to the season. It’s fall, hasn’t rained in a while and everything is dry and brittle. The way back was pretty sketchy due to the trail being eroded and overgrown. I had my dog with me today but would not recommend taking your 4-legged friends unless you put them in protective footwear. There were a lot of cactus spurs on the trail and cacti butting up against the trail on the loop back. I might do this again in the spring without my dog and when things are more green.

Came across a rattlesnake today! be safe and watch where you step!

The beginning of the hike is rather dull, and once the trail kicks in it's not much better. The views of the lake are nice, but the trail wasn't super well maintained. I would definitely put this in the easy category as opposed to the moderate.

Great hike

String is boring. Balloon(loop) is the fun part. Good climb with a sketchy fun descent.

Beautiful hike when you get to the wooded areas, stream and pond. Take the pup only if it's cool outside.

This is one of my first MTB trails and I would have to say this good track trail to start with if you are new to MTBing. The loop around the Golf Course is very easy, although you can take it up a notch if you want want to venture more East towards the Sweetwater Campground (where all the climbing begins).

We did this and ended up at San Miguel. Followed the map. Wasn't the elevation we expected to reach based on this app, but it was a lot of fun. The pictures at the rock house were awesome. Definitely a great hike that isn't very difficult.

It was a very hard trial, but also very fun to do. I saw a lot of wildlife there. Like a rattlesnake. You are going to have so much fun on this trial

Nice and easy but not very natural and lots of trash in the river which makes it pretty gross to look at at times. Good running trail and looks fun on a bike (easy, flat).

Apologize for hasty remark earlier, I am starting to like your program better. keep up the good work. Will review san gorgonio, next ( my net planned hike, again).

Went on a Monday and there wasn't a lot of traffic. Good views, make sure to bring enough water.

Easy to find. Free parking. My pregnant wife and I did it so the easy difficulty rating is accurate. One half is quiet and scenic with the lake and mountain. The other half is noisy from the highway.

Pretty easy with a few short climbs. Boring at the start, but good views one in the hills and at the end.
