Miles: ~3 Miles
Another late start and another trail baking. Escondido Creek was a pleasant surprise, as well as how many people were on the trail on a Monday. I passed a group of what I thought were female firefighter trainees, but then realized they were inmates. Yikes.
A great hike with plenty of benches near the trail with shade.
Update Jan 07, 2017: I hiked to the top again on a busy Saturday
