Description

This trail begins as an off-shoot of the San Ysidro Trail about 6/10 of a mile after the San Ysidro Trail begins from its trailhead on Mountain Drive. Following the McMenemy Trail from this juncture, head west and the trail will take you over the creek and through eucalyptus woodland before ascending up a series of switchbacks to the McMenemy Bench.

At this point, there's an intersection with the Girard Trail, which heads to the north. Continue along the McMenemy Trail by continuing straight (to the west).

The McMenemy Trail then descends into and climbs out of a small canyon to reach a ridge top where it hits a juncture with the Saddle Rock Trail roughly 1.4 miles into the run. Run for another 4/10 of a mile as you descend Hot Springs Canyon's east wall over a few switchbacks. You'll then run into a T-intersection with the Hot Springs Trail. At this point, the McMenemy Trail comes to its end. If you want, you can link up with other trails nearby to extend your run.
