This out-and-back route across Cleveland National Forest lands on Palomar’s north slopes and traverses some wild and lonely country—in fact, some of the most remote territory found anywhere in Southern California. The destination is Eagle Crag, a granite outcrop upon which you can sit with dangling legs and contemplate the sheer drop of 1000 or more feet below you. Be aware that the route begins outside the Agua Tibia Wilderness, and is only partially mapped on the Forest Service topographic map/ brochure for Agua Tibia Wilderness.
