frazer19 saidAnyone know of any hiking routes around the San Diego area? I've already explored camp pendleton and all (in the marines). Looking for some other routes not traveled as much.
Anyone got some suggestions?
I'm in San Diego. If anyone wants to go hiking, email me.
Meanwhile, in response to the question, there are many great hiking trails, both short and long, in San Diego.
Here are only a few suggestions.
Bayside Trail, Cabrillo National Monument (City of San Diego) has stupendous views of San Diego and its bay.
Hollenbeck Canyon Trail (Jamul, east San Diego County) winds through an impressive grove of oaks and along a lengthy canyon.
Ellie Lane Trail (Poway, north San Diego County) is a moderately difficult trail with wonderful views of mountains, it eventually joins the Iron Mountain Trail.
I recently hiked the last one with a gay outdoors group called Great Outdoors San Diego. Our leader was very knowledgeable of hiking generally and this trail specifically.
