Great hike just off the I-15 in Escondido. Hike past Lake Hodges and up a mountain for views of the surrounding area. This trail is part of a network of trails from Coast to Crest so you can hike as long or as short as you'd like.

Morning hike with family. Beautiful hike. My only complaint would be the road bikes that are very quiet coming up behind you. It's hard to move out of the way if your engaged in conversation and don't hear them coming. There's no need to be rude about it either, we didn't hear you jack knife. Mountain bikes were louder and more courteous, perhaps the mountain bike riders are familiar with walking a trail as well as riding it, so they get the dilemma.

Excellent hike with panoramic view at the very top you can see the ocean in the distance on a clear day with the lakes and mountains nearby. Must go to the top!

This was an easy-moderate trail to hike, with many other options along the way to extend your journey. Great views from the top of the ocean, mountains, and all of San Diego County! Definitely going back!
