We are just starting out hiking and this was perfect. We took our almost two year old in a carrier and our golden retriever who has had surgery for hip dysplasia two years ago. Everyone did great!

Great wooded trail with plenty of trees for shade. Be sure to purchase an adventure pass at the visitor's center or local store for parking within Cleveland National Forest.

A quick hike to the top of Wooded Hill (elev. 6,223), #3 on the San Diego Sierra Club's 100 peaks list. Well maintained, easy hike, only 300' in elevation gain.

We went on a Saturday in March. We didn't see any other hikers. (There were mountain bikers and horses even though the sign read neither are allowed)
This one is SLOWLY coming back from the 2007 fires. It was weirdly dry and brown despite recent rains and considering it was green in most of the country. Lots of trees, as the name implies, so lots of shade. It's marked and maintained pretty well. There were a few trees that had fallen onto the trail but they were easy enough to circumvent. Terrain was pretty good. Not too rocky, but boots are a good idea.
I liked it. There's a nice view towards the peak.

Nice walk. There is hill so it isn't flat. Mostly tree covered.

Nice leisurely loop that meanders through mixed coniferous forest up to one of the higher points in the Mt. Laguna Recreation Area. Not too heavily traveled even though its about an hour from downtown. Short and fun little escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
