A poorly marked trail without much shade. The lake is small and not much view...

Great easy loop for a quick afternoon hike near Carlsbad. Very pretty wild flowers, not heavily trafficked.

Trail behind my house. Great short and hard hike. Lots of loose earth so be careful. You get to hike up an old volcano and at the top you have 360 views of north Carlsbad and the Pacific Ocean. You can do a quick loop in under an hour and it's a great workout.
