Fortuna Mountain has both north and south peaks, approachable from the saddle or there are other options. The loop in the GPS data attached goes to South Fortuna then the saddle. In places you get wide open views all the way to Mexico.

There are number of trails in Mission Park that can be used to make almost any desired loop. In spring the area is carpet of green, in summer everything dies and turns brown.

If the San Diego river happens to have water approaching from the visitor center may not be the best idea, when were there the "enhanced river crossing" had 3 feet of water.

On Wednesdays there are guided tours from the visitor center than describe the local vegetation.
