Lived in SD for years and never did Viejas... Finally got it done when in town for a wedding in Alpine. Hiked to the top and jogged down - just over an hour RT. Great little climb!
Nice views all around. Stopped at the flag on the way down. Went on to McGinty after this one.
Second peak of the day after Eagle Peak. The west slope use trail would make a great workout if you lived in the area. Nice views of El Cajon Mountain which I hiked afterwards.
Very nice views of El Capitan.
On the way home after Oakzanita, Peak 5243, and Japacha the night before... I was impressed with Viejas, the views are great!
via the use trail. Great views from the summit.
This was my first SD county peak climbed (besides Cowles). Good deal of prominence and really nice views from the top.
