Ascent Trip Report

Hike up via Caballo trailhead to Sage trail and picked up Stanley Peak trail to summit. On the way down I used the Quail Run trail to save time and distance. Good hike saw about 15 people up and back which included three equestrians. Started hike at 1005 hr., reached summit at 1130; left summit at 1137 hr; back at trailhead at 1241 hr. Caballo trailhead was not easy to find no thanks to construction along Valley Center Rd. Caballo trail is rutted and eroded at the lower levels but the trails are well beaten and marked. I'm guessing in the mileage I put in: it wasn't clear because there was a disparity between map and trail marking.
