  • This is a very nice hike, with great views along the way. It is easy to get there and the trail is easy to follow, with interesting information displays along the way.  more »
  • The hike was a bit moderate as it's uphill, but the views were spectacular! Well worth the hike! Bring lots of water and be prepared for a bit of climate change.  more »
  • I went hiking a day or so if you want to come from San Diego ... I went to a little time to come up to the arduous desert and. .. In this case, went on to come. It's about an hour and a half drive from San Diego, if you will arrive by julien. Volcan mountain trail, you can search Google maps right up to the entrance. Farmer road. The entrance to the side street parking on both sides to be able to do this and. .. There are pull up. Is a little climb five oaks trail gaping length coming up. .. Please go this way. If you go by road is not just the landscape is very good. Five oaks trail to go to scenery, and shade. Bunching up. .. South Korea's bukhansan, rather than easier. It's just hotter in the summer. 5 month anywhere .. fattening die times. More than 40 less than 35 degrees ... Don't go in the shade, thanks to dry weather is cool. Wind blowing as well. .. Until the top one and a half hours? If you go slowly it goes within two hours. Five oaks trail, drive to the bench, and names like Oak. This road connects with the road again. The top is flat hills. On the other side of San Diego, California poppy flowers are yellow in the view where you can see the benches, and the Anza borrego desert scenery in the East, will spread. If you go more enjoyable when hot and I was able to go. Exercise a day Sanya goodbye.

  • Nice trail. Took the Five oaks trail to summit. All uphill and less shade this route and a tad longer, short of 6 miles. Most people take the fire road with more shade. All uphill and doesn't really level off until the summit. Consumed about 1.5 liters of water mixed with Gatorade and I'm out of shape. Best in late fall and spring. Nice views and not crowded.
  • Short hike on nicely maintained trail with an optional, more rugged return trip. Only 5 miles up and back - but some of the best views of desert and ocean.
  • Beautiful and serene higher altitude trails with great lookout points of the mountains. I saw only a few people the day I went out and it's a place I will remember!
  • Beautiful area with a great hike. Went on a guided hike with a ranger and he was really awesome. Very knowledgeable
  • Great all around hike, scenic and relaxing.
