I found it hard to find and access this trail. We came off of Del Sur Road where there’s a small dirt parking lot and found it by accident. But we had to go down a steep incline on a concrete pathway to get to it. I agree with the other comments that it is not marked well. For a while, I thought I was on the Coast to Crest Trail. It was a decent hike from where we started to Rancho Santa Fe area—a total of about 5.4 miles round trip. The creek is nice to hear as you walk, but it’s mostly not visible. There’s rolling hills to see, but there’s almost always homes on the horizon so there’s only a brief section where you feel like you are away from civilization. There were only a few people on it which was nice.
