The Double Peak Trail is a 4.1 mile hike that offers incredible scenic views, just outside of San Diego.

The Double Peak Trail in Lakeview Park is a moderate hike, good for most skill levels and families. Discovery Lake is the best starting point. When you reach the top, your efforts will be rewarded with 360 degree views of the surrounding landscapes. The trail is shared by dog walkers, trail runners, horseback riders, hikers, and mountain bikers.
