Ascent Trip Report

Trailhead is at the yellow gate at Mile Marker 7.5 on Otay Lakes Road in Jamul, CA. Trail leads into the Otay Mountain Wilderness. Be careful not to block the gate when you park. To avoid the toll road on Hwy 125, take I-805 south, exit at Olympic Pkwy, left on La Media, Right on Otay Lakes Road, past San Diego Skydiving.

This trip is short and sweet, but fairly steep. Trail is an old jeep track. View of Lower Otay Reservoir, the elusive Peak 2242, and a lesser peak to the southeast. Of particular interest is the waterfall area between 2242 and the lesser peak. Nice breeze on top. Trip down will test your downhill muscles.
