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.
