Went for a hike on the Upper Santa Ysabel Creek Trail (parts on the Kanaka Trail loop) for the first time - What a beautiful, peaceful area! The trail is not very strenous, some rolling hills. You'll encounter the cows that roam the area. The afternoon we went, we didn't encounter another single person. Hard to believe this area is in San Diego - especially when you get on the upper flats. If you're looking to get away for a rare San Diego jewel, head here!
