  • A pretty short hike through a slot canyon. The parking area is at the end of the road in a neighborhood. Very limited parking! The hike up to the slots was pretty but it's next to the freeway, so it kind of ruins the scenery, but not terribly. You'll still enjoy this little walk in nature. The actual slot canyon section is really short, it's only a small portion of the hike, the rest of the hike is out in the open on a pretty and very well marked trail. It does get really narrow once you're in the slots and there's one section where there's a ladder. It's really fun and easy to get through. I don't recommend putting your dog through that, unless you have a small doggy and you can carry them up. But, it's up to you. It is fun for the whole family, kids can easily do this hike. I did it on my way out of San Diego. It's right off the freeway so it was well worth the stop. Highly recommend.
  • Fun and quick. Fully exposed, it was 70 degrees and I was HOT, I wouldn’t want to do this hike if it was too much warmer outside. You start and end by walking up and down some big hills along the highway - give your self some patience for those, they’re rough. The canyon is really cool. It’s one way, you can only go up the canyon then back down the switchbacks.
