“360 degree views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

This is a great place to just relax and enjoy magnificent sweeping views. There is a small playground that interests young children for a while, and a good size amphitheater we've used for GS events. Some picnic tables too. There are hiking trails that will take you up to this park (not for the faint of heart or out of shape -- and bring water for the trail). Park closes at dusk.

“Sweeping 360 views - best in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

The very top of Double Peak affords some awesome views and provides a great workout if hiking from the bottom of the trail in Discovery Hills. Trails appear to be well maintained and are generally not crowded. Even just a drive up to the top is worthwhile...on a clear day it is really something to see. Sweeping views of the coastline and mountains out to the east.

“Best views in coastal north county.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

If you are in the area this park has excellent views of North San Diego. On a clear day, you can see San Onofre, San Clemente Island, Catalina Island, and all the way down to La Jolla. There are also miles of walking/hiking/bike trails. Really a nice place to visit. Open from sunrise to sunset. Recommend seeing on a clear day.

“Steady climb up but worth the work out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

Hit this trail early to beat the crowds and the heat!! Started at discovery hills. Jogged through a neighborhood and then continued up. You can choose which way to go depending on how many mikes you want to hike. Next time I will try another route till ice tried them all. Liked my adventure. Restrooms and water at top and bottom.
