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

Hiking Santa Barbara, San Diego, and beyond, one peak at a time. I encourage people to get outside, promote stewardship of the outdoors, and engage people in the spirit of the wilderness. Feel free to reach out to me with questions.


  1. OK, but the “map” doesn’t show where Mt Israel is. ???

  2. Oops, that’s a typo! I will correct it and upload a new map. Thanks for the catch.
