About Eagle Rock

My mind goes wild with the possible legends Eagle Rock must have and how sacred it must be for tribes in the area. Stories that hopefully have been shared through generations.

While you’re in the area, make sure to visit St. Francis of Assisi Chapel nearby!

I do know that this rock formation was created by wind and took thousands of years to look like what it does today. What the wind molded is utterly fascinating: an uncanny resemblance to an eagle. Even more special is that this rock lays direction atop the Pacific Crest Trail. A quick history lesson: the Pacific Crest Trail is a trail that spans from Mexico to Canada along the crest of the mountains in California, Oregon, and Washington and is 2,659 miles long.

Personal experience

We did this hike in late March which is most likely the ideal time to do any hike. The weather is cool and the wildflowers are beginning to show. Although I have not been out here in summer I can pretty much promise there will be no green grass nor flowers during that time of the year.

The hike starts off a little bland but becomes progressively more beautiful as you reach your destination. Where the Eagle Rock lays is absolutely stunning and looks like a scene out of a movie![/vc_column_text]

We shot one of our “Hidden San Diego Music Sessions” here.  Check it out!


The hike begins next to the fire station. You will be hiking southeast. Make sure you close any gates that you enter during your hike. These are here to keep the cows in.
