Do you like hiking? Do you enjoy a healthy challenge? How about climbing rocks and boulders to get to an up close and personal view of 3 beautiful waterfalls? Well, if you said yes to any of these questions, then you’re in luck! In Descanso, located just 20 miles east from the heart of San Diego, you can enjoy the quaintness of a small country town and breath-taking mountain views as you travel to the trail head of 3 Sisters Falls. The trail itself is about a 4 mile round trip and will take between two to three hours to complete. It is one of the more challenging hikes in San Diego so come prepared with some sturdy shoes or hiking boots and lots of water! There are some striking views of the surrounding mountains as you hike down into the valley where the falls are located. On a few sections of the hike you will need to climb some rocks, but don’t worry, there are ropes to help you on your journey. Once you get to the falls, you can sit and relax in the shade and take in the beautiful views of the falls and the valley surrounding you. Be sure to rest up because the returning hike is much more difficult. Be sure to go with a friend so you can help each other along the way. The best time of year to go is during the Fall or Winter so you can beat the heat. So go and enjoy this exciting, glorious hike!
