My husband was looking for a glass store and our GPS led me to this jewel. It was so peaceful and exactly what we needed that day after a stressful week. Our son really enjoyed looking at the li'l island and we will definitely come back!

The Pedestrian Bridge is just a lure to an area that is much more than it appears. You can see the bridge from I-15 and we always wanted to know more about it considering the bridge does not go over water? Found out that the parking is located across from the Mall in Escondido so it was easy access and... More

Lake Hodges is awesome all around for hiking and MTB. The views are very nice and the trails are not too intense.

The wonderful trails that stretch around Lake Hodges are a true delight. A great place for a picnic, there is a bench and picnic table at the far west end of the trail under the shade of lovely trees. There is a lot of local wild life.

Lake Hodges looks beautiful from afar, especially if there has been rain and it's green, not now. Took a few walks when I was new and seemed desolate then I heard about a girl being raped and murdered there so I don't go by myself anymore which is sad since it's so close to my home.

If you like nature you will like this bridge especially when there is more water in lake Hodges again. There are lots of Western Grebe's displaying here during the early spring but right now in October of 2014 after zero rain again there are just weeds.

What can one say about a bridge . . . it's there, and you walk over it. The only unique thing about it is the engineering, you will not find another one like it in the world.

The bridge is a great addition to the Lake, but sadly we need water....I have done a boot camp workout on this bridge and it was great.

The drought in CA has taken a toll on Lake Hodges and the water level is so far down. The lake used to be so beautiful and this bridge now seems almost ill-conceived for the amount of money the taxpayers paid for it. However, that this bridge is considered an "attraction" is laughable. This is near where a young woman... More
