Hidden hike in San Diego. I have lived very close to this hike for years and never realized it existed. Very easy hike, except towards the end. Very steep hill climbs that repeat. Think large, steep, rolling hills.
If you're a local just looking for some exercise, this is a great trail for jogging or walking with dogs or kids. I wouldn't make an out-of-town drive to it. It's pretty dull on the "scenic" factor. Also, it took us a hot minute to find the entrance near the golf course, though it's definitely not the only way to get to the trail.
Great for running!
