This was certainly the place to be with the extreme heat southern California was experiencing. Thank goodness we had checked the weather forecast because we had crazy WIND, RAIN, CLOUDS, and it was just down right chilly most of the hike. We LOVED IT because when we had left San Diego at 5:30 a.m. it was already 87 F! The only problem… there was absolutely no VIEW! HA!! WE were socked in the fog and clouds pretty much from Round Valley on up. Guess we will have to do it again sometime on a nice clear day! This was a fantastic hike and honestly we were not in a hurry to get back to San Diego.
