Corte Madera Mountain Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"On a clear day atop Corte Madera Mountain, you can see forever—or at least as far as Santa Catalina and San Clemente Islands to the west and the mile-high Sierra Juarez plateau in Baja California to the south. From many parts of San Diego, Corte Madera Mountain’s sheer south face appears as an abrupt drop in the profile of the eastern horizon. On the summit, you stand near the edge of that 300-foot-high precipice."
