“Worth the drive down the spur road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2008

Keys View offers spectacular views of the surrounding area. There is a paved 0.25 mile loop that goes up a somewhat steep hill and back down the other side. It was very windy at the top, but you can see more, and there is a map that points out some of the things you can see. It's a little steep for pushing a stroller, but you can still get a great view from the parking lot at the bottom.

“then and now”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2002

First time I visited Keyes View was around 1958 while stationed with the Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton. You could see the Salton Sea easily and even a small portion of Mexico. I recently revisited Keyes View (2002)and could not believe how much smog is now in the valley. The view is still great but not what it use to be
