Actually we have never been here, but it is on our bucket list for our next Escondido trip. This just keeps popping up on Trip Advisor, not sure why except we looked at the bridge as a possible vacation spot

I will be honest and say that I did not hike across this bridge, but I did want to point out that the picture here is very misleading. There is no river under the bridge, which is undoubtedly due to the drought. I have passed...More

Maybe could, but I have never seen anyone swimming. There are no beaches. Only activities seem to be fishing or boating. I have used my kayak on the lake. I have seen windsurfers.
