Bernardo Mountain

California > San Diego > N SD
Access Issue: Current San Diego County Advisories Details


On the east end of Lake Hodges is Bernardo Mountain, which is a popular hike. The east face of the hill holds some fun bouldering and a few short crags with old TR bolts. Good for something different and it's close by. I believe a fire came through here at some point, making some of the rock friable. Once any loose flakes are gone it is solid and grippy. Still quite a bit of potential and it's fairly easy to navigate.

Getting There

Approach for Bernardo Mountain Summit Trail. Either hike up the steep hillside or go up the main trail and branch off to the boulders.
