Double Peak Trail

Double Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide

"As of 2006, a messy old homesite still occupied the summit, along with scattered eucalyptus and olive trees. The foreground landscape will surely change, but the view of distant features likely won’t. On clear winter days you can often see the highest mountain ranges of southern California (San Gabriels, San Bernardinos, and San Jacintos) in the north, and the shining Pacific Ocean in the west and southwest. On days of exceptional atmospheric clarity, add to that list Santa Catalina Island offshore from Orange and L.A. counties, and the Coronado Islands off the northern Baja coast."

Beautiful vista hike from Discovery Lake. Double Peaks is a San Marcos gem. Nice trails throughout Neighorhood’s and mountains. The views at the top are 360 and breathtaking.
