Hello Hikers!

Well, we had a nice mix of light rain and sunshine this weekend, I hope everyone had the chance to get out. It looks like we’re in for some more rain next weekend so you might want to get out early in the week if you are able to.

Next Monday, February 20, is President’s Day, and is also a free entrance day for National Parks and National Forests.

Remember that in inclement weather, some of the area’s trails may be temporarily closed. Fox 5 posted a report early last week showing washed out bridges at Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve.

Next Saturday head on over to Daley Ranch for a Discover Daley Ranch Hike. Meet Naturalist William Sherrard for a slow to moderately paced hike on the trails of Daley Ranch. The planned hike is between five and seven miles in length and will last about 2.5 to 3.0 hours. I will be happy to map out a hike for those wishing to go longer distances. Choices are hikes of 5, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16 or 18 miles in length. Check out the City of Escondido web site for more information, or visit our Events Page to find even more upcoming hikes and events.

The US Fish & Wildlife Service recently released endangered Quino checkerspot butterfly larvae onto the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge in an attempt to help increase the population.
