This trail should be marked moderate, it is not an easy hike.

The first mile-ish is easy, the rest of the hike is moderate. Going the route provided by AllTrails, the way back is extremely steep- those not in good shape should avoid the gullies, so maybe do an out-and-back from the halfway point rather than the full loop.

Great for a leisurely stroll when you’re not looking for a tough hike.

For just walking, this is probably the easiest trail that you could find It is a nice distance and there are always views around.

Nice meandering trail at an infamous place. There is a very touching memorial park nearby.

Great views over the lake.

Great trail. Follow the Fortuna Trail and you won't get lost. You initially start on the San Diego River Crossing Trail. Completed it in 2hrs with a decent pace as I stopped to enjoy the scenery.
