This trail took me almost 2 hours and 45 minutes. Great views and minimal traffic! I did see a few rattle snakes, a road runner and some lizards. One of the snakes was in its hole so watch out they can be hard to see.

My favorite hike in San Diego. I used to live nearby and hiked it twice weekly, it took me roughly 3 hours, and longer if in the middle of the day in summer. I've spotted large rattlesnakes, roadrunners, horned toads, Jeruselum Cricket, tarantulas and owls on this trail...much better workout and less packed than Coweles..often hiked during a weekday, seeing minimal people. =)
