Though there is nothing at the trailhead saying anything about crossing on to lake property or a needed fee. This trail has you cross in to Lake Cuyamaca property for a short distance. There are signs posted about a mile in that says do not enter without paying the fee at the tackle shop.

Keep going until you hit the abandoned mining town. If you love history like me, you’ll be stunned once you reach this hidden gem. Views, history, archaeology, bird watching, environmental photography.

Muddy and I’ll defined trail at the beginning when you go after the snow melts. Otherwise, well defined and easy trail. Still lots of snow on the ground in early February

Amazing nature walk. a few climbs, nothing to intense. We got snow flurries today, Jan 23 2021, and it made for a breathtaking walk. During the spring/summer there is a bathroom and little museum half way. Great for dogs and families. Clean hike with little trash or dog poop on trail. Deer and Mountain Lion evidence on trail.

Absolutely perfect with a little snow drill left in the ground. Not a lot of shade but weather didn’t need it. I love this hike and can’t wait to come back.

We started this trail by the little trout pond. We’ve looked this hike up on many different sites but none say anything about a fee. About 1 mile in you come to a sign that says “fee area. Do not enter without paying first”. We called and were told you DO need to pay.

Lovely, flat, and easy. Good views of lake, meadows, and mountains. Single track trail. I missed the turn off for Stonewall Mine but you can add that too.

Start is quite boring with lot if houses, roads and people around the lake. Much more interesting on the loop of the mine with some really nice views and the impression to be more remote
