I always enjoy this hike. Great workout and views!

Fear hits! Due to wildfires, we didn’t see as far as we would have, but it was a great hike!

Awesome trail but recommend trail shoes with spikes if u want to go up to tower. Found a beautiful old tree with stones welcoming you to come near it

More of a biking/horse trail that a hiking trail. But still a nice 2 mile walk if you do some add ins.

This is a good, moderate trail to take if you don't mind a lot of sun exposure and some sporadic mountain bikes whizzing past you. We went on 11/10/8 and it wasn't too busy, just families and a trash clean-up crew. The trail is pretty wide and well maintained and there are a few scattered benches with nice views.
Overall, this is a good option for a quick hike away from the city and away from the normal crowds at the Eaton Canyon Waterfall and Nature Center. Bring water and a snack!

Great trail, saw lots of deers, squirrels and kids learned about surrounding plants. Nice little hike! Plus it was a treat taking out some kayaks after the walk.

I LOVE THAT YOU CAN BRING DOGS WITH YOU

Super easy. Mostly a fireroad hike.

This is a great easy access trail. Watch out for frisbee golfers and there was a cross country meet there on a Friday so we had to alter out route a little. Otherwise it’s a nice loop trail with clear signage.

Nice short hike. Free parking. A few little uphill parts of the trail but nothing too difficult.

Fun hike for any ages.

Only 2.5 miles up to the peak if you just want a good view (5mi round trip).

There is a fee to enter.

ok hike not much to see. Got some exercise in. I want to recant this "not much to see" after reading some history and the preservation effort of the landscape and original plants of San Diego it was a pretty cool hike ... ....

Nice with great views!

Very poorly maintained, lots of homeless camps,trash everywhere, the walk isn’t even along the river, saw used gloves along trail. Very sketchy.

A really nice, easy urban-ish walk. Takes you through some of San Diego’s old neighborhoods and canyons. Ends with a stroll through Balboa Park. Nice for a hot Santa Ana day with plenty of availability for shade depending on what side of the street you choose to walk on!

Beautiful trail with some good shade.

Love the trails! You can make your hikes short and quick or go for miles. I condition my horse for endurance here also. Great technical ups and downs and flat areas to trot out.

It’s a nice short hike and a good way to get your heart pumping. You get to walk by a nice stream, although during the summer it’s pretty dry but it’s gorgeous during the winter and fall. There’s a little waterfall as well, which is pretty nice and you can’t miss, it’s pretty difficult to get off road. I’ve had the pleasure to enjoy its tranquil scenery numerous times, it’s my little get away during lunch. I’ve seen many little lizards, butterflies, and even had the pleasure of seeing a hawk gracefully resting on a branch. The only thing that may bother someone is that the trail is not always properly maintained, shrubbery, and it’s rather narrow in certain areas. I quite enjoy it though. There’s always dog walkers in the area, which I don’t mind since I love animals and a few bikers here and there but they’re always respectful and have never run be over.

Perfect to test our skills

Had to learn to pace myself when running this trail. Good hills, nice views, overall had a lot of fun.

A decent hike. We did it clockwise and I would say that it’s more than moderate!

Excellent

Dull but easy hike on a wide equestrian path, leading from one parking lot to another. Meh.

Great hike. Saw a few folks on the way up with a 6a start. Not the best sunrise hike unless you start 90min before sunrise as you’ll miss much of it. But amazing views and a few benches on the way down to sit and enjoy
