El Cajon Mountain is the hardest and most challenging hike of the SD 6 peaks and (IMHO) it’s harder and more challenging than several of the original 6 peaks.
I recorded 11.6 miles. Temps were very nice today. Low 40’s when I stepped off and mid 60’s as I completed the hike at about 1400. The trail was in great condition. I saw lots of New Year’s Day hikers on the trail today.
