Description

There are several trailheads with trails leading to Kwaay Paay Peak. This trailhead is located on Father Junipero Serra road closest to the dirt parking lot. You can park on Junipero Serra road, but if you're planning on staying past 7 pm, park on the dirt parking lot at the entrance to Mission Trails Park.

The trail begins with a steep climb and never lets up. You encounter several flat places where you can give your legs a rest, but you face another steep climb near the end.

Once you reach the top, you are rewarded with 360-degree views of San Diego and of the entire Mission Trails Park.

Be cautious on the return trip since the steepness can be treacherous. Trekking poles are recommended but not required.
