HikingGreat!

My favorite hike in SD when I was living down the street from the area. Different types of terrain and vegetation to explore along with the opportunity to summit north and south fortuna nearby. When you’re finished you can also summit kwaay pay which is walking distance from the oak canyon TH.

There are so many other trails around the middle of this hike, that you have to pay attention to the app to stay on (at least for me). I like that there is actually some shade here. Plenty of interesting things to look at on this hike, and parking is easy.

was very dry when we went but I could see that it would be a great hike during the winter and spring.

Nice moderate trail, lots of shade and big rocks to navigate, a few hills to climb but not hard.

First part was nice, as you loop around toward the freeway becomes less pleasant. Pretty easy 2h walk with a few rocks for our 4yo to jump over.
