This is a nice short, easy trail that even a three-year-old should be able to handle, except for maybe a few rough and difficult spots. The trail is a bit steep at first, but the gain only lasts for a short while as the route climbs and eventually arrives at a beautiful plateau at about 0.5 mile. From there the trail is level all the way to the boulder outcropping, about 0.5 mile farther, that contains the pictographs. The rock and pictographs are easy to spot, and virtually impossible to miss, but pay careful attention to the right side of the trail, as there are several smaller offshoots that lead around the rock and to other sites indicative of the earlier Native American Kumeyaay inhabitants.
