Mount Helix is a 0.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near La Mesa, California and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
The little side trail on top, provides a great view over El Cajon. There is also a drinking fountain toward the front of the amphitheater.
I park at the bottom across from the fire station. It's a moderately steep trek to the top on an asphalt road that is open to cars. Views are 360° on the way up and at the top. Views are beautiful any time of day but especially at sunset.
Absolutely no parking and too many homes
I lived in this neighborhood so it was my morning/evening running path. Not a trail. Spectacular 360 views and a stone auditorium great for running stairs or doing cross fit exercises. Almost always lots of car traffic.
This trail is a paved road with lots of beautiful homes, perfect for a runner. Once you're up at the top you have some stairs you can enjoy.
Awesome and easy paved trail with a great view
Well if you guys looked around you woulda seen a big mountain with a cross on it and thought hmm. I bet that's the one they're talking about
