I went there today Saturday 23May. For starters, this hike is in a residential area. There is no parking lot but there is a small street that you can park outside the trail head. If you don't get parking there, there is ample street parking nearby. I followed the trail exactly from the app, and it's easy going down to the waterfall (which is about halfway) but there is no shade and it's humid. You need a few bottles of water and a hat etc. The waterfall is decent but not that great, perhaps it was just way too crowded (over 40 people) so go early in the morning if you prefer something more peaceful. Barely anyone wore masks either. The trail itself however, is not busy even with the mountain bikers. Going back is where the hike is moderate, the hill to get back up has an incline and can be a challenge. Also, pay attention as you can drift off to a longer (possibly easier) trail to get back if you don't want the incline.

LIMITED PARKING- Please be aware this trail head is located at the end of a neighborhood. There is limited parking between the houses.

Lots of bridges and good extra lagoon loop

Great trail. One part of the trail is closed (last 0.5 miles)but we walked right through quickly. Didn’t see any snakes but should be careful regardless.

so beautiful all the wild flowers

Fun, easy trail made for light walking. Good shade, be weary of some poison oak on trail.

Open for everyone and sometimes packed. Good for training! . Some trails will say close and have another route you can take but eventually you end up in the trail that’s closed anyways lol. Nothing stops you from going through the “closed for construction” trail. Good luck! @trail_goat

Tecolote is definitely an easy and fun trail. It has a lot of nice flowers, creeks and even a swing hanging from a tree. The first part is along the golf course and is the only challenging part of this hike, as it’s steel uphill, but once you pass that, it’s super easy hike. The map is not exactly accurate as many of the paths are overgrown or erosion made it impossible to go on it. So we have to switch some paths. There is not much elevation overall, so I consider this as more of a walking than hiking. Good for running.

I hiked this today for the first time. The Mission Trails parking lots were open today; I don't know if this is permanent but both the parking at the start of this trail, and the parking at the Visitors center, were both open. I brought plenty of water and some snacks and was glad I did. The trail is in good shape and well maintained. The flowers were blooming and it was very beautiful. I didn't run in to too many others over the six miles, maybe a dozen or so people total, but I started early. Minimal shade. I am a relatively new hiker and this was a challenging hike for me, but I will be doing it again as it's beautiful and so close to home.

I went hiking to this a month ago & it’s super beautiful it has a lot of flowers that have over grown. Super rocky, along hike! (Maybe because I took a lot of breaks?)

This is one of my favorite trails in san diego. It’s a 3.8 mile hike to the waterfall and then 3.8 miles back. It’s mostly flat if you’re walking from the parking lot, which there is a $3 (CASH ONLY) fee. A little rocky towards the middle of the hike but nothing to bad. I have 2 small dogs and they did very well on the hike. Be aware of rattle snakes we did see some in the brush and you can hear them as you walk by. Over all a great place to hike !

Nice trail. Great for kids and dogs. Parking lot closed. Watch out for horse piles!
