This is a slightly abbreviated version of our San Clemente Canyon hike, about three or four miles round trip, with some shade. It's a fairly easy hike, but for those who want some rough stuff, there will be an optional scramble up and down a steep, slippery path near the turnaround point. A little side trip along Cobb Trail may also be in the works.
Marian Bear Park has two large trailheads that we've used in the past, but this time we'll start at the smaller Genesee Avenue trailhead. It's on the east side of Genesee Ave. just south of Highway 52 (Thomas 1228 E6, N[masked] W[masked]). The approximate street address is 5501 Genesee Ave., San Diego CA 92117.
SUGGESTED ROUTE FROM SAN DIEGO: Go north on Interstate 5 and east on Highway 52. Exit at Genesee Ave. and turn right at the end of the ramp and then right again into the parking area.
The number 41 MTS bus stops near the parking area. It runs about every 15 minutes.
