This is another great peak to summit after work. Located up in San Marcos, I was able to drive to the trailhead on the way from work.
The trail is well maintained and well used by locals for exercise. In fact, part of the route goes through a neighborhood. Once at the top you have some incredible views of north county.
One thing to note, you can actually just drive to the top of this summit 🙂
I am an avid peak bagger, sometimes backpacker, and former sea kayaker living in San Diego. In 2019, I became the third person to complete the San Diego 100 Peak Challenge. Not stopping with that accomplishment, I set my sights on the harder San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list, which I completed in 2021. In addition, I have conquered several Six-Pack of Peaks challenges (SoCal, San Diego, and Arizona-Winter). Beyond attempting the San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list a second time, I am looking forward to exploring new summits and new adventures across the southwest.
