El Cajon Mountain

March 22nd, 2020

3 take aways from this hike; and then some:

  1. The all trails map says this trail is closed, it is not. The gate allows people to park there and plenty of hikers on the trail.
  2. A lot of hills before the summit, which means when descend you still have to climb back over these hills so save your energy.
  3. Some of the trail is washed out. So the dirty is a bit slippery, one of our friends slipped and scrapped his knee. He was fine, but we just had to be careful going slow.

Extra notes:

  • I started at 1045am, summited at 1:30pm and finished at 4:30pm
  • social distancing 😉
  • bring sunscreen because there isn't much shade

  1. Edit: Today, as of March 24th, I read that most if not all parks are now closed. I am pressing pause on my hikes and #stayingathome
