Hiking Black Mountain, San Diego, California

Trail Description

Length:  4.1 miles round trip
Elevation gain: 700 ft
Difficulty Assessment: Moderate
Trail Type: Out and Back

The Hike

This week we hiked Black Mountain. The trail entrance is not too far if you live near UCSD and is about half a hour drive north east. Like Cowles Mountain, this is more of a casual trail, located near a neighborhood, and is also quite short. The hike can be easily completed within 30 minutes. Although I would have enjoyed a longer hike, all in all I had a good time.

The address to the trail head is:

12115 Black Mountain Rd # A
San Diego, CA 92129-3600

On a side note; I think getting up early for a hike is as much part of the experience as the hike itself. It adds to the sense of accomplishment at the end of the hike.
