Perfect day for a hike! Good workout. Good starting point for a beginner honestly. #shinsplintsfordays.

This was a lot harder than we expected, but we got through it. Trail was very quiet and challenging!

Great trail with a good view of San Diego. Similar payoff as Cowels Mountain, without the crowds.
I think moderate is the right difficulty level. It's not incredibly long, but there some extended steep sections.

Short, steep hike. Rocky and sandy, so can be slippery on the way down. Not too crowded. Connects to the Father Junipero Serra trail, if you want to be out a bit longer.
