Overview: A hike in chaparral at the head of San Pascual Valley, with long views of mountains and the valley, with a view of the ocean on a clear day. Across the highway to the east a short distance there is also a trailhead for North Clevenger Canyon Trails. All of this is part of the San Dieguito River Trail System. Santa Ysabel Creek runs alongside highway 78, but is not part of the South Clevenger section. If you hike all the trails on south side you will get 7 miles and 1900 feet elevation gain.
