Awesome trail. Some of the best views I've seen of the desert from the Mt Laguna. Pretty easy with amazing views and dropoffs. Lots of photo ops.

Short but scenic trail. Steeper than the easy classification would imply, but pretty mild for a "peak" trail.

I would not call this trail easy...very rocky and at times steep. It's a great hike and the view is breathtaking.

Easy but some steep bits. Peak lies right smack on the border dividing Anza Borrego Desert from chaparral of Cleveland Forest.

The contrast between high alpine environments to the desert way down below is incredible. Easy to find. The hike itself is a nice, easy trail with lots to look at. The silence mixed with the noise of the wind sweeping across the mountain was awesome. If in the summer bring water.
