Quick but great workout!!!

Easy, flat, shaded hike along the creek. Very popular hike for your furry 4 legged friends.

Nice Sunday afternoon hike. Kid and pet friendly.

Took our dog here! She’s use to being off leash so it kinda sucked for her but it’s a very easy and cool loop!

Easy trail with the kids. Had fun trying to cross the river at several spots towards the top and would have kept going had we come prepared for as much water as we came across. not giving it full stars because of all the horse droppings and the beach like sand along most of the trail that filled our shoes.

This was a nice trail for an easier hike. It was very peaceful with the water sounds and having shade a large portion of the trail. We saw a coyote on the trail and a beautiful blue jay . We did a few offshoots so made it 6 miles. The loose dirt made it very dirty for the shoes and feet - never seen my feet to dirty after a hike.

Great hike! Steep all the way to the summit but very worth it

Great trail for fitness or training. Scrub landscape with no shade. Watch out for snakes? Watch out for dog poo everywhere!

Good hike ! Gets the heart pumping !

Excellent hike. Great views. Easy trails to navigate. Only a few rock areas to work around. Very peaceful hike.

This has to be one of my favorites in the San Diego area. The trail is, for the most part, an easy walk, barring a few stretches that are narrow with loose dirt and rocks hindering, but nothing challenging.
We went during winter break at around 10 in the morning. There were about 5 cars in the parking lot. But when we got back there were about a dozen, so not too crowded at all.
It was a hot day at 84F but the trail is fully shaded and cool except in a couple of patches.
The best part was the sound of flowing water that followed us and this was in spite of not having had any rainfall this winter.
We walked down to the river, stepping on rocks without getting our feet wet.
There are benches along the trail to rest or just take in the view and listen to the water/birds.

Very pretty trail along the river. Dusty and some washed-out sections though; so, be ready for some creative footwork!

Nicely shaded throughout. Some rock scrambling near the start of trail may make footing dicey if you have a large dog on leash that pulls--careful!

Great steep trail, great to train on and it's close to home.

A relaxing walk/hike next to a flowing river! It was refreshing to see the cool water on the rocks! There was parking available and per signs (in December) the trail was open until 4:30P.

The trail is lovely, peaceful, and the river is great to be next to. There are a few steep rocky points.

I love it definitely recommend it!!!

Great workout of a hike. Definitely recommend doing the full loop. A lot of change in elevation with some great views of the surrounding area. Watch for snakes!

The beginning isn’t much for MTB but after about a half mile it gets better
