Mother Miguel Mountain Via Rock House Trail is a 4.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Bonita, California that features a lake. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Once on top, to the east you can see the eastern mountains, rolling hills, and the Salt Creek Golf Course; to the west and south you can see all of Bonita, Sweetwater Reservoir, and Chula Vista all the way to the bay and the sea. Enjoy views all the way to Mexico, Coronado, and Downtown San Diego. No shade, rapid elevation change, very steep in some areas. Loose rocks! Be careful on your way down.
Good picture at the top, almost all the incline in one shot
This is a great moderate hike close to home. It isn't long, but challenging enough to burn some calories. The views are beautiful and seeing all the wild flowers and grasses are a nice change from the rock landscapes I've hiked lately.
This trail wasn't the easiest because most of it is steep. But it was fun and rewarding. There are zigzag trails to make it easier on you. Only thing to watch out for is sliding when going down.
Great views, easy climb
Nice hike close to home!!!!
Awesome trail. Beautiful views.
