Mount Israel – Peak #4

Mount Israel
Elevation: 1,346′
Miles: ~3 Miles
Trail head

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.

Escondido Creek was flowing nicely

    Hello there, if you click on the “Trailhead” link it will open a new tab and center the map on it. It is the Elfin Forest Visitor Center at 8833 Harmony Grove Rd, Escondido, CA 92029.

    On your Mt. Israel Map, you wrote ‘Comb’s Peak’, is it supposed to say Mt. Israel or are there 2 peaks available here?
