Chiquito Falls
Chiquito Falls
Lakeland Village, California, United States (18.0 miles away)
 
Difficult: 8.6 miles, Half day
A strenuous 9 mile out-and-back hike that visits two beautiful seasonal waterfalls in Orange County.

When you think of hiking in Orange County, you don’t usually envision dramatic waterfalls. But during the spring, there are a number of wonderful seasonal waterfalls that are just a hike away. One of my personal favorites is Chiquito Falls. This hike is a 9 mile out-and-back route with nearly 3,000′ of vertical elevation gain. And it’s a waterfall...

Lake Elsinore, California, United States (18.1 miles away)
 
Easy: 2.1 miles, 1 hour or less
Easy and relatively short hike. Yet, very beautiful scenes, and landscapes.

This is a easy and relatively short hike, yet offers a very complete experience. As the name says, it is a loop trail in the Cleveland National Forest, off of Ortega Highway. It goes through different portions of open trail and really old oak trees covered sections. You can enjoy views of landscape, a small waterfall in a gorge and go along the creek...

Monserate Mountain Loop

Fallbrook, California, United States
Hiking | 4.2 miles (8.8 miles away)
The Fallbrook Land Conservancy has done an outstanding job of providing an outstanding exercise trail in the San Diego North County. This loop covers about 4.1 miles and has some serious climbing. The climb exceeds that of Cowles and Iron Mountain.This loop consists of old abandoned roads and trails. The biggest bummer of the hike is the constant roar of traffic on Interstate 15. But mile for mile this trail will get...

Hiking | 6.6 miles (14.3 miles away)
I used The Northface's Trailhead iPhone app to track the hike but the result was way off.  The actual hike was about 9 miles/4 hrs.  We started at around 9:30, spent around 1/2 hr at the falls for lunch break and ended at 2pm.  Definitely switching to a different tracking app next time!
