Ascent Trip Report

We parked at the end of Sunset Drive and proceeded 1.65 miles along the mostly level North Shore Lake Hodges Trail. At a trail junction just beyond the surprisingly lush Felicita Creek, we turned right on the Bernardo Summit Trail and continued 1.95 miles to the summit. Surprisingly good view from the top of this relatively low San Diego County peak. Gatorade kept us going on this hot August afternoon.
