“It's All About Perspective~”

Reviewed February 28, 2013

Now I know a little bit of what the fisherman see from their boats - out on the lake! We got on the trail from the east side of the the freeway at Mule Hill Trail and Sunset Drive (site of the restored Sikes Adobe) parking our car in the cul-d-sac. To reach the bridge, one needs to walk along (but below) the freeway and then cross under Interstate 15 (another interesting perspective and a cool photo-op) and well worth the short hike. Just do it!

There is a parking lot at the top of the hill and I understand that there is parking at the other side and you have go under the I15 bridge and park near storage sheds. Interesting walk, marsh area now because of low water. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Hodges_Bridge gives some information about the bridge. We were able to talk to a bridge worker, who stated that the lights on the bridge do not work because of theft, copper wire and panels. The bridge walk was interesting, there were construction type bathrooms on one side - condition is unknown. Big blue heron flew in to the marsh and was walking around, big bird. Hard hill climb back up, bench to sit on part way up.

It's a pedestrian brige over a creepy part of the lake next to a loud freeway. Parking is limited along the side of the road. This section of the lake looks like some freaky Harry Potter scene with dead tree branches poking out of the water. This bridge is good for one thing and one thing only...getting walkers, hikers, and bikers from one side of the lake to the other. Its not an attraction by any means. A better bet would be to drive a little further south on West Bernardo Drive to RB Community Park. There is ample parking and hiking trails that lead to a more scenic part of Lake Hodges. If you still want to walk across the bridge, the trails will lead you around the lake and directly to the bridge.

If you are traveling on I15 near Escondido, CA, make sure you stop and take a leisurely walk across the Lake Hodges pedestrian bridge. A very unique bridge with a great view of the lake you are walking over and the beautiful landscape surrounding Lake Hodges.
