52 Hike Challenge 2016 Adventure Series
This hike is one of my favorites in San Diego County. Nice easy trek up on a well maintained trail in Rancho Cuyamaca State Park. The summit rewards you with a stunning 360 degree view of the surrounding park and landscape. To the east is Granite Mountain, Anza-Borrego and the Salton Sea, to the North is Palomar Mountain and the observatory, on a clear day you can see the ocean and to the South Mexico. The park isn't the same as it once was due to fires but it's still a great way to get away from the city to breathe some fresh air and stretch your legs.
