Double Peak, San Marcos
Saturday, Nov. 10
5.0 miles, Moderate Pace
This hike provides panoramic views of the entire inland North County area, along with an ocean vista from the top. Our route goes up a mostly undeveloped north slope and capitalizes on a 1,000-foot elevation gain. This is appealing, of course, if you’re amenable to a bit of vigorous exercise! We begin the hike at Lakeview Park, next to a small reservoir called Discovery Lake. Bring plenty of water. Meet at 10:00 am; hike begins at 10:15 am.
Directions: Exit SR-78 at Twin Oaks Valley Road (which becomes San Elijo Road, but you won’t go that far) in San Marcos. Turn south and proceed 0.7 mile to Craven Road. Turn right on Craven and continue 0.7 mile to Foxhall Drive. Turn left on Foxhall and proceed to the end of the road and into the parking lot for Lakeview Park and Discovery Lake.
