Welcome to February! Start making plans now, because President’s Day weekend, February 14 – 16, there will be free admission to all National Parks. President’s Day, February 16, will be a fee-free day in the National Forests. A long weekend and free admission? You have no excuse not to go for a hike!
But you don’t have to wait for President’s Day. Next weekend you can go out with the San Diego Natural History Museum Canyoneers to hike the Bow Willow – Rockhouse Canyon Loop in Anza-Borrego. This is an intermediate (plus extra challenges) 8 mile hike with elevation change of up to 1000 feet. This is a moderately strenuous hike over some well-marked trails. Hearty desert plants like cholla, ocotillo, and creosote bush are likely to be seen on the way to a rock shack, watering trough, and pipeline leading to a seasonal spring and waterfall. Part of the journey requires boulder hopping and some simple route finding. For more information, visit the Canyoneers web page, or visit our Events Page to find even more upcoming hikes and activities.
Mission Trails has announced that the South Climber’s Loop Trail is now open after extensive renovation following last summer’s fire.
