Standard canyon trail in the middle of suburban Tierrasanta. Dogs are allowed on a leash. There are a few creeks or ditches to cross over, but the small bridges are pretty sturdy. The trail is very easy to follow but is overgrown. As you hike you alternate through lengths of open canyon and stretches of overgrown/overhead bushes and trees. There are a few areas with a steep incline but they are not difficult to hike.

Trail is on military property and is so overgrown that you would miss it without the app. It is not safe for two reasons. You have to walk along a golf driving range and there is a risk of rattlesnakes since it is completely overgrown.

Sometimes a little bit difficult to know which branch of the trail to take, but I loved all of the trees and shaded areas. We started at Roadrunner Park and ended up on Baroque Lane which is a quick walk back to Roadrunner Park.

Diverse trail. Main part of the right side leg is closed. Would rate it rather easy than moderate. Must be stunning in early spring.

The trail is almost completely over grown. We passed the fork in the trail twice before finding it. We didn't complete it as the bush got too thick and we found evidence of a vagrant camp so we turned around.
