I looked for a trailhead from the top as I drove up not wanting to deal with all the traffic on the roads. I did see a trail down the steeper part of the hill but did not notice any other options. If I had this trek I would have spent some more time looking off the northeast side. I wanted to do a quick down-and-up, will investigate this further next time.

There is a trail....
You have to walk down the memorial and you will see a steep dirt area that leads down. As you head down the steep decline you will see a brown dirt trail. Its a great trail making you get your hand dirt!

It looked like it would be nice except the trail is closed! Gated and padlocked

Made it to the Veteran's Memorial, but only by walking along a couple of narrow roads through a residential area. Not a sidewalk or walkway in sight, and the traffic seemed heavy for a weekday, presumably because people were driving to the memorial. Views were nice, but not worth the hassle of dodging traffic. Spent a few moments in grateful contemplation in honor of those who serve.

There is no trail. The paragraph above that states it is "a 6 mile lightly trafficked" trail is from Jerry Shad's book, 50 Best Short Hikes, San Diego. On pages 81 - 83 there is a description of the route and a map. It is all roads--lightly trafficked roads. His hike/walk route is an in and out--not a loop. There are some very steep areas.

The view from the top is amazing. You can see all areas of San Diego from this view! Beautiful!

Not much of a hike but once atop the mountain you see all of san diego in 360.

The hike was really pretty but it just wasn't as good as some of the other hikes on this site

Couldn't find trailhead, but walking the neighborhood hills was fun.

2 Stars because I didn't find any trailhead, however, it was an honorable time walking around the cross seeing all the service men & women go gave their lives for this great country. I did a photo shoot of the cross and the flag and thought I would share it with you all.
