In the area for some vacation time and was looking for a place to get some exercise outside. The area has a nice nature center with some displays in good shape. There are a variety of hiking trails, including some more difficult ones to the tops of the '5 peaks' in the park. There are several other trailheads around the... 更多
I found out about this park via singletracks.com because I wanted to ride a mountain bike while in San Diego for a conference - I needed something active to do after sitting inside discussing work and this park was perfect. Easy to find, but the trails were sometimes challenging to negotiate as I was not used to the CA topography.... 更多
If you live in San Diego you'll wonder why you've never been to this park. It's for everyone!!! There's a beautiful museum/library/visitor center surrounded by picturesque mountains and natural beauty. It offers hiking trails for all ages and real rock climbing if that's your thing. We ride our bike from the center down to the Old Mission Dam and that's... 更多
We've been to Mission Trails dozens of times, probably even hundreds of times. It's a beautiful park with a lot of open space and lots of good opportunities for getting outside and wandering around. Early evenings are wonderful as the park is not at all crowded.
I haven't been on a lot of the different trails. I have mainly walked from the parking lot in Santee over to the Visitors center and it is a paved walking trail that you take. I really enjoy the walk. It really isn't a hike, but you walk by along a river you can walk down to. There are trails... 更多
Drove to the park early on a Sunday morning, people were out walking and climbing when we arrived. Went to the visitor center and walked around both inside and out. Very nicely done. Could easily spend several hours there.
One of the nice things about this park is that you can tailor your visit. You can go out there to hike, take an easy stroll, run, ride your bike, or ride your horse. Best part is that leashed dogs are welcome. (You will see some off leash, but know that there are rattle snakes out there.) There are many,... 更多
We went for a morning hike along the San Diego River and through the Grassland area. Nice views, unchallenging walking on our route. Saw a golden eagle! There is apparently a lot of bike riding here, too. We will hike here again next time we are in San Diego.
It's a great place to go on weekend. You can walk or bike ride. The dam is pretty cool. We did the loop trail, I think it's about 2 miles. Bring water and snack. What I liked about this place is my kid can take own sweet time to hike without blocking others, and the trail is super friendly for... 更多
