Hi.

Hiking, backpacking, and camping throughout Southern California and beyond

Wooded Hill Summit – PEAK #14

At 6,223 feet, this is the highest peak of the 100 Peaks that I've summited so far. However, it is also the easiest hike. It will likely be the easiest hike in the 100 Peaks quest, as it is less than 1.5 miles round trip, and around 300 feet of elevation gain from trail head to summit. Since the hike was so short, I decided to bring my 18-month-old daughter along in a carrier. She enjoyed calling out the numbers on the trail and looking for lizards.

Once we got on the summit, she excitedly climbed some small hills and played in the dirt. We were presented with a wonderful view of the Cuyamaca area.

We got back to the parking area in no time. We were going to see the visitor center, but Sophie fell asleep two minutes after getting in the car. A lot of excitement and the fresh air wore her out.
