# Conversions To Travel Times From Other Cities

In my Fallbrook hiking tables, the distance to a given hike in time and miles is from Alta Vista and Acacia Lane. To convert those measures to time from another location in North County is relatively easy if one of the locations in the table below is on the way from your house to that hike. It does require some work on your part. It requires more work on your part if your location is not in North County, or if you would not go through one of the locations in the table below, and probably isn't worth it.

Below I give the time from my reference point to other locations. In order to convert a given hike, you must figure out which of those locations is on the way from my house to that hike. If that location is on the way for you to get to that hike, you can then just add the time it takes you to get to that location and subtract the time it takes me to get to that location.

Two examples, using the Santa Margarita River Trail:

• Assume your location is at Alvarado and Mission near downtown Fallbrook. You would go through the location "Mission and De Luz Road" below. Suppose it takes you 3 minutes to get there. The table below shows that it takes me 11 minutes to get there. Hence it would take you +3 - 11 = -8 extra minutes, meaning you would get there in 8 minutes less than my quoted time.
• Assume your location is in Southeast Escondido. You would have to compute the time it takes you to get to the location "Mission and De Luz Road", and again subtract the 11 minutes.

Another example, using a hike in the Cuyamacas:

• If your location is at Alvarado and Mission near downtown Fallbrook, you would go through the location "I-15 and S-76" below. If it takes you 12 minutes to get there, it would take you 2 minutes longer than me (+12 - 10) to get to any of those hikes.
• If your location was in Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos or Escondido, and you would go through "I-15 and SR-78", subtract 23 minutes from your time to get to that location.

Time from my house to the following locations:
