The center piece of the park is the 1,554 foot summit of Black Mountain which provides 360 degree views of the surrounding area. On a clear day the visitor can scan the horizon for ocean views to the west, mountain views to the north and east, and views of downtown San Diego to the south.

Access to the summit is provided by a 2.5 mile hike or bike ride up a dirt road that is near Hilltop Community Park located at 9711 Oviedo Way.

• Dogs must be on a leash not to exceed 8 feet.
