Actually we have never been here, but it is on our bucket list for our next Escondido trip. This just keeps popping up on Trip Advisor, not sure why except we looked at the bridge as a possible vacation spot

This bridge is connected to a walking/biking path that covers a long trail. During the drought it was dry but presently has water.

This is a good area for hiking and biking. The scenery is nice. You can walk long distances or short. If you are walking, do be mindful of all the bikers.

Maybe could, but I have never seen anyone swimming. There are no beaches. Only activities seem to be fishing or boating. I have used my kayak on the lake. I have seen windsurfers.

Exit I15 at West Bernardo Dr / Pomerardo Road. Turn to West. go 0.4 mi and parking will be on right. Paved trail (0.3 mi one way) starts at North end of parking. Before the drought, Lake Hodges was under the bridge
