Fantastic engineering creation. This bridge connects many jogging/hiking trails. Easy access from the 15. I felt very safe and at ease.

Drove by the bridge 100's of times and finally took the time to hike the bridge and surrounding hills. Good hike, dog friendly.

A strssed concrete ribbon suspension bridge, it is the longest of its type in the US. Located in the approximate location of the first bridge that crossed Lake Hodges.

I used to have to ride my bike on the freeway to access north to Escondido from San Diego. This is a nice safe and much quieter commute. Also you can now access Lake Hodges northern trails.

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.
