Great weather - could see forever with great vistas
This was a really nice trail with a lot of variety. The weather was perfect (high 70's, slight breeze, not a cloud in the sky). The view from the top make this trail a must do for San Diego. It had everything from oak groves, meadows, switchbacks and some fun boulders to climb and take photos from. The boulders at the top make a perfect lunch spot. We will definitely do this hike again, and try some of the other nearby trails.
Oakzanita peak is a wonderful peaklet in the Cuyamacas. It is boulder studded so the top makes a great lunch spot with wonderful views. For a much more challenging hike, try starting from the Pioneer Mail parking area on Mt. Laguna and either set up a car shuttle or hike an 18 mile (but moderate as far as elevation gain and loss goes) day.
