2nd attempt at San Mateo Peak. Started at Morgan Trail and took a left before sign in box. Got to the right turn past the sign for Rancho Capo Loop to go up to San Mateo peak trail but stopped doe to a swarm of relentless bees and really bad muck we didn't want to cross. Ended up staying on trail that said Rancho Cap Loop which eventually ended at a gate in a community at Monterey and Arroyo streets. Took South Main Divide road back to Morgan because bugs were bad. We saw no loop trail. Really overgrown and lots of bugs.

Started at the trail head off S. Main Divide and went all the way down to the Ortega Hwy. the Fitbit tracked exactly 5 miles (each way) well maintained and not difficult at all.

Not to difficult. It has a beautiful little forest of Calif Oaks near the trailhead with a cute stream flowing though it.

It's a nice easy hike, very quiet down in the creek canyon. Watch out for poison oak.
