This hike is an opportunity to sample the Coast to Crest Trail that will eventually stretch 70 miles from Del Mar to the Volcan Mountains overlooking Anza-Borrego Desert. If you can go to your Zen place just long enough to get beyond the intrusive freeway noise at the start of the hike, the payoff is a jaunt past expansive cactus habitat, across a year-round creek in a palm canyon culminating with 360-degree views from the summit of Bernardo Mountain.
