Hi all!We did this hike back in January, but I thought an easy, family-friendly, dog-friendlyt hike in the shade and by water would be awesome for August when it might be a tad toasty.

This is a fairly easy-going one: Escondido Falls. It's a pretty easy hike at +/- 3.8 miles with very little elevation change (either 482 or 786 ft). The reason for the lack of specificity on the distance details is that every description of the hike has something different listed. Based on the last time we did this hike, I suspect that this is because there are different points for the hike to stop. For a detailed description, seehereor for more details seehere. This can be a pretty easy hike if you're starting back on a workout regimen, but the climbing and scrambling we did at the end the last time we went can be a fun challenge for those most advanced. Either way, should be a good time. When we're done playing outside, we'll head over to Duke's for some food and probably some mai tais! Note: The trail is dog-friendly (on leash), but dogs are not allowed at Duke's. If we have a significant number of dogs with us, we'll opt for Casa Escobar instead.

See you then!
