Mount Israel - Peak #4

Mount Israel - Peak #4


Mount IsraelElevation: 1,346′ Miles: ~3 Miles Trail head

Another late start and another trail baking. Escondido Creek was a pleasant surprise, as well as how many people were on the trail on a Monday. I passed a group of what I thought were female firefighter trainees, but then realized they were inmates. Yikes.

A great hike with plenty of benches near the trail with shade.

Escondido Creek was flowing nicely
