Friday’s hike started from the Horse Staging Area. We hiked a 10.1 mile loop consisting of the Escondido, Cinch, Scenic, Pemberton, and Escondido trails.
There will be an equestrian endurance ride over the weekend – it’s called Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way. We saw a number of horses as we walked through the parking lot on the way to the Escondido Trail.
A view from midway up the hill on the Scenic Trail:

When we got back to the Horse Staging Area, we noticed that even more horses had arrived.
