Santa Margarita Trail

This is a beautiful trail for all year round because its shady and follows the river. Its easy to moderate depending on how far you want to go. The trail is well maintained and popular.”

“After doing Iron Mountain, Cowels and all the normal hiking spots in San Diego I started to search the web for some less well know trails and came across this little gem. The drive from Poway took me about 30 minutes as I drove through beautiful avocado farms I really had no idea what to expect. The trail is in reasonable condition, it is very rocky and in some parts gets really steep. I didn’t see another person the whole time I was on the trial.”

Beautiful Area
Amazing scenery, easy to find, and simply a fun hike. Picked the perfect day to go, nice rainy cinco de mayo.. the rain made it that much more amazing of an experience, loved the greenery and little river.
