Backpackers quick, quiet, getaway with views!

 Corte Madera Mountain in Cleveland National Forest, just east of San Diego. You will need a permit, but you can get a free permit emailed to you if you call the rangers station. The Trail is a 7.5 mile out and back trail near Morena Village. There are great views over

the Lake Morena area and the desert as you climb. At 4,657 feet, it is a continuous climb, so don’t forget to take plenty of water! Overall, great hike.  Campsites, at the summit, are just off trail surrounded by large granite boulders and great views.
