Get a map at the trail head. There are a lot of trails in the park and though they are marked, they can be confusing.

Great trail. Follow the Fortuna Trail and you won't get lost. You initially start on the San Diego River Crossing Trail. Completed it in 2hrs with a decent pace as I stopped to enjoy the scenery.

Nice

This is a great hike with two pretty steep climbs and a number of other trail options if you want to make it longer or shorter. Outreach was just about 1.5 hours in a loop.
