Hollenbeck Canyon Trail is a 4.6 mile hike by a gorgeous river with stunning canyon views, easily accessible from the greater San Diego area.

The trail is wide and well maintained. The first mile of the trail is well shaded by oak trees. You'll see stunning rocky peaks and rolling green hills as the trail continues. There are three creek crossings to be aware of. Cleveland National Forest is dog friendly, but bring a leash! Hunting is allowed in this area, so stay on the trail and watch for signage. 

There are many connecting trails if you want to extend your hiking distance.
