I only got to hike the San Diego County area , my son was supposed to hike the whole trail in 2016!, but unfortunately he passed away in a car crash in December of 2015 . So in his memory I did the hike in San Diego County since I recently moved down here. It’s a very beautiful hike and I applaud everyone who has hike it or getting ready to hike it.

**Disclaimer** Definitely more than one lake This trail will ruin you in the best way Worth the 5 months - if you're on the fence... just do the damn thing!

I'm in awe of every hiker who has completed this trail and everybody who attempts it. You inspire me. This trail looks fantastic from what I have seen on YouTube and what I have heard about it. I wish I could attempt it but it is physically impossible for me to thru hike it due to medical reasons. You all are awesome. Happy trails... ☺
