    The best part of this small-town-city feel is the trees & homes lining the hills. Lots of shade, nice walking & usually warm!

    Disappointing for sure! Compared with views from Cuyamaca Peak and even Cowles mtn, Mount Helix is nothing.

    Reconnect with your self, bring water, good music or a book. Take in the view for a deserved time out to recharge.

    If you drive up when the sun is setting, u can catch the most amazing sunset of your life from the cross. Unbelievable. Park by the amphitheater.

    A bit out of the way and a bit harder to find than you would think, but a cool drive up, and great views of the surrounding land and mountains. Read more
