This past Sunday we got up early and headed to Escondido for a hike at Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve.
Pretty brook at the entrance.
Pretty hills and valleys.
We did The Way Up Trail and it's definitely UP! I don't know why you can't tell very well in pictures but the whole way up was a steep incline.
It took us almost 3 hours round trip but it was an amazing workout and there were super pretty views of Harmony Grove and the reservoir at the top.
We totally recommend this one! It's a hidden gem for sure!
