Great hike, nice views, we would love to go again with the dogs.

Great new option for hikers in the North County. Panoramic views from the top.

Please use the trailhead off Carmelita Ave. For directions go to the ALPS website: www.supportalps.org and click on Properties / Three Bridges Oak Preserve / Trailhead.
Thanks,

Good trail. Great views. LOTS of foxtails when I went. Not for novice mountain bikers. My son and I were given bad advice when picking an "easy" trail for a new mt biking. The switchbacks and steep drop offs by the trail side were cool for me but terrifying for my son, who I was lucky to get back onto the bike after his experience at Stadium.

Solid trail for what it is. Small loop with some hills, mighty oak trees to look at with lots of deer. There's a bench halfway through that overlooks the golf course. For 5 stars it needs an epic view at the end but that's not this trail. There are cool goats at the trailhead! I want to pet them so much...

Nice local walk. Lots of wildlife

Easy hike, great views, and beautiful trees-old oaks, manzanita, and madrone to name a few. Very well maintained. Moderate traffic given proximity to towns.

Excellent trail - my new favorite! Nice to have a hike with some good elevation gain so close to town. The bottom loop is good for even the youngest hikers :)

Great trail!
Thanks ALPS!❤️

My new favorite after work hike.
