Beautiful trail located in the Cleveland National Forest that takes you on PCT for a short period. Only negative is the radio towers and structures located on the peak. Otherwise excellent hike that can be completed by beginners. Don't get lost though, the trail does not have the clearest markings.

Fun and easy trail.

First time hiking this area. Beautiful views. Trails are well marked.

The summit view is superb in every direction. Picked this trip based on its description in "Afoot and Afield in San Diego County" which mentions the key route-finding tip (for those without GPS), to begin counting your steps when you turn north onto the PCT from the Big Laguna Trail, and at about 800 steps, after you see the antennas on the peak, continue straight (east) when the PCT zigs hard left.

Good hike for a quick afternoon. Great payoff at the ridge with amazing views of the desert. Not much shade half way to to the turn around point. Easy to miss the turn off the Pacific Crest Trail, so pay attention or do your research. Dogs loved the hike. Some wildlife- a few turkey, a fox and. A lot of birds.

Beautiful view
