Runner Notes

Steep and loose, this would make for a challenging but doable hill climb with a rewarding view at the top.

Description

This trail will take you to the top of Bernardo Mountain within the San Dieguito River Park. The trail can be steep with loose sections that require careful footing. That being said, you'll be rewarded with a great view of the surrounding area and Lake Hodges below.
