Warner Springs, California Map

Shorter hike than expected, and we found good weather aside from the Santa Ana winds this week. Really cool eagle rock, but not very many good views along the way. Try and explore more along PCT if you go!

Beautiful views! Enter the PCT across the road from the parking area and go through pipe gate (there will be three gates total). Lovely hike through open oak woodland habitat out to the plains and rolling hills. Super windy and exposed so bring lots of water.

The ‘incline’ at the beginning wasn’t really obvious — very gradual climb with lots of shade and pretty fall colors throughout. When you reach the open field just before the Eagle, expect no shade. Quite blistering even at 78 degrees. The rock is quite the sight and it was super fun to climb on top of for a photo op. Glorious hike with a brilliant change of landscape throughout.

Fun hike but I wouldn't drive 2 hours there to do again. Shade in the beginning hotter than hell once you hit the open field closer to the Eagle. Cool to see in person & climbing it was fun for a photo op. Came in about 6 1/4 miles round trip on my Apple Watch.

Took my pupper out here today. challenging but not brutal. inclines are pretty gentle and the steep parts don't last too long. the rock is a gorgeous place to take pictures of and from. the last half mile or so before the rock offers zero shade.

Veterans Day Hike. November 10, 2017 Triumph the highest peak in San Diego County, Hot Springs Mountain from the longest and steepest part, Hot Springs Drive. Racked up 16.24 RT mileage and 3,413 ft. elevation gains returning to Trailhead on a beautiful sunset! The views to the Tower and Peak are breathtaking amazing and worth the hike. Signed the official Peak Log and located one geological benchmark. Only recommendation, bring plenty of snacks, water and a mask from the relentless gnats!

Awesome trail and hike
