Short hike up with a beautiful payoff! The area can get pretty busy with people trying to get their pictures in, especially during the summer but well worth the trip year round

I’m sure the loop would be a nice hike, but this site says nothing about turning off the trail onto another trail to make the loop. We ended up 8 miles into the woods following the azalea trail that is not a loop. Sheriff department rescued us after dark on what ended up being a 12 mile hike to the far end of the azalea trail and a 15 mile drive back to our vehicles.

This was a nice, moderately trafficked trail.
It was just the right amount of difficulty and ease.
Aside from Mallory Cave, there are a bunch of different trail systems at this open space.

To reach the peak in 4.1 miles if you start at the trailhead next to the San Diego Humane Society. There is a large dirt parking lot with free parking. This trail/peak is part of Daley Ranch. We went on a cool morning and found this to be a pretty easy hike with mostly moderate incline or flat areas with just a couple steep segments that don't last very long. However, depending on the time of year and day that you hike this in I could see this being hard since there is very little shade and mostly exposed to the sun.
The route we took was Cabrillo to Sage to Stanley Peak and it was 8.2 miles RT. There is a spot about .3 miles from the peak that has a pretty good ledge with dramatic drop off for a photo op. At the peak you are rewarded with some great views and there was a metal container with a notebook to sign if you wish or write a journal entry.
Other details: 1,390 ft elevation gain, peak elevation is 1,976 ft, took us about 3 hrs to hike plus however much time you decide to spend at the peak, hiking poles not required (should be fine with shoes with good traction), and about 1-2L of water depending on the weather

A great hike, the weather is perfect now, just a little bit of icy patches at top. An excellent way to spend a couple of hours outdoors, Not too strenuous

Nice trail, just what I needed to see how my achy knee would hold up to some climbing.

New rules, park hours are sunrise to sunset. Railings are added to a large portion of the parking lot. I am sad I can no longer hike this in the winter.

Nice little hike. Incredible ocean views.

Great training or exercise hike. It does get busy, but the more the merrier. The view of Tucson from the top is amazing.

Great hike, definitely didnt feel like a 6 miler. Easy and fun, plus we saw birds and deer and climbed on the rocks for a while.

Nice little hike. I’d say it’s more of a leisurely walk with cool views of Papago. There are several trails within one so it’s easy to not follow the exact route that’s shown on the AllTrails App. I imagine in the summer there is more of a challenge just due to the lack of shade and the heat.

Nice easy day hike. Lots of options to extend into a longer outing or shorten into a quick explore. Dogs loves it! Started at 16699 Golden Hills road that has a few parking spots

Just to say that I found the AllTrails map for this hike not as useful as in their other maps of hiking trails that I have used. It differs in ways from the Map and Trail Guide I got at the Nature Center and, where they differed, the Nature Center’s map was more accurate.

Didn’t see much wildlife but we did see lots of dog poop. Sad

The trails are well kept up with about a 2.5 mile trail as the longest one. Very easy to walk
there are some board walk trails that are slippery when wet.
Plus it cost $ 5.00 to get in but its worth it they have a lot to manage there with animals and trail clean up.

This is a great trail that gives you some hills! It’s as hard as you want it to be.

You have to pay $10 to reach the path or park outside the campground and walk about a mile to the path.
We paid to eat in but even then we had to park about half a mile away fro the starting point. It was a laid back hike that takes you through a park first then up a hill and then along the east side of the river.
We just went a week ago and it was very muddy.
Don’t go with a stroller.

i really enjoyed the route. it was gravel in parts, paved for some and a wooden walkway for others. you can hear the highway in all parts of the trail. nice 4 mile mid morning jaunt for us

First time there and it was beautiful. Flat, paved walk. Great for the family. Lots of people!

Great place for birding

beautiful trail!

Amazing hike! Not that hard by any means. Definitely muddy. Was pretty foggy at the top. Amazing views!

Wouldn’t say is hard- solid moderate. Short. Trail crosses rock slide which is fantastic. Trail takes you to back of first flatiron, which cool, is bit of anticlimax...

easy trail, main path is wide
