We came here for the first time based on the reviews but it was a disaster for our German Spitz who found the sand too hot for his paws. He jumped off the trail to a shaded patch of dry grass and rolled in it to find some relief. So, this grass is full of barbed, needle things that immediately embedded in his sense fur , between his toes, everywhere! I was getting stabbed with them too when I picked him up. We didn't make it far before this happened, so we walked back to the car and pulled out as many as we could but we needed professional help. In Fallbrook we found Fallbrook Pet Parlor. They absolutely saved the day. Next time, we will take Otie to the Pet Parlor and home the trail without him.

The trail is amazing, I had my two dogs and everyone was friendly there. There’s plenty of access to the river and the water is calm. Had an amazing time

Had a great hike to the summit, and down by the creek. Was able to let the pup off the leash for a while when there was no one around, but beware of other hikers. Had a great time playing fetch in the water.
- MollyMore than a year agoBe aware..
I found about 10 ticks total on my two dogs. The dogs loved the hike but my day was ruined picking ticks and being paranoid after the hike..I won't be returning in Spring/Early Summer as I have read thats when they come out. I would rather avoid the hassle
