Hello Hikers!

I hope you had a chance to hit the trails while everyone else was inside watching sportsball. It looks like we’ve got a few days of rain ahead of us, but hopefully it will be dry by the weekend.

Next Sunday, join the San Diego Natural History Museum Canyoneers as they hike Fortuna Mountain at Mission Trails Regional Park. From this high vantage point, enjoy a surprising variety of seasonal wildflowers and view an area that once contained ancient beaches. This is a difficult 5 mile hike with an elevation gain/loss of up to 1500 feet. Visit the Canyoneers’ web page for more details, or check out our Events Page to find even more upcoming hikes and events.

Portions of the Bernardo Bay/Piedras Pintadas Trails are temporarily closed while repairs are made. There are detours in place. Check out the San Dieguito River Park web site for maps and information.

There are also some trail closures in effect at the San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve while highway improvement work is conducted. A map of affected trails can be found on the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy website.

NBC San Diego has an article about a rescue this past weekend of an injured hiker on Cowles Mountain.

Here’s the latest outdoor and fitness deal from Amazon:

Have a good week!
