Rad, flowing single track trail. Slight descent that ends with a small wooden bridge.

Access Info

Start at the top of the Gayle L McCandliss Park. Follow dirt road to top of hill. Trail is somewhat hidden at top of hill. Go straight towards bushes instead of following main trail that veers to left. If you take a wrong turn, you'll have a beautiful view of downtown San Diego and the Bay.

       How are the trail conditions right now? Is the trail overgrown? If so, I wish somebody(I don't mean you) would maintain the trail. I only know that the canyon to the east of 4 Palms is maintained, east of the street on Paseo Del Rey, and nobody has done anything for 4 Palms!

       Very overgrown. Watch out for the cactus when crossing road going over the gates.
