This is perfect for a romantic stroll or taking the kids to feed the ducks and play on a playground. This "trail" is part of a really cute neighborhood community center area. Very nice for a family picnic, after dinner walk or jogging trail.

The location on this map is completely wrong. Not very good we wasted an hour on that. Is this is the info I can expect from the app I'm on to the next app.

Great one night backpacking trail. Started up Dripping Springs Trail at noon. Camped at junction of Palomar McGee and Wild Horse Trail w/beautiful views. Went down Wildhorse as sun rose and finished at 11am.

The trails were primarily dirt roads. Trail maps did not distinguish between roads and hiking trails. Nothing special. Also, there was some occasional piece of trash on the trail. Nice views and always good to get outside, though. One cool part was a road/trail was blazed right on some ridge lines.

BRING LOTS OF WATER! You are constantly in the sun on this hike and it is a pretty steady steep climb. I brought 32oz and had to use it sparingly by the end. fantastic views and well worth at least hiking 5.2 miles to the peak and seeing the view of all the mountaintops, Vail lake, and much more.

There were even a few places to camp off the trail that have great views. I will be back

Excellent hike in Southern California with good elevation and excellent views. Seeing the TEMECULA valley from this perspective is unique. The best part is creating the initial peaks and dropping into the green valley before heading up to Palomar mountain. Amazing views not obtainable except on the trail.

This is NOT, I repeat, NOT difficult! The lake is beautiful and there is a park for the kids. The kids will love the ducks.
