This Week in San Diego Hiking – July 10, 2017

Hello Hikers!

I’m not a fan of the muggy weather, hopefully it should be drying out a little bit this week.

But I’ll take a little humidity over the 100+ desert temperatures volunteers had to endure during the recent Anza-Borrego Bighorn Sheep Count. KQED news has a great article on the event.

The San Diego Union Tribune reports that a stretch of the San Luis Rey River trail in Oceanside will be temporarily closed this fall to allow work removing sediment from the riverbed to improve water flow and mitigate flooding risks.

Next week, local leaders will meet to discuss possible solutions to the dangerous parking and pedestrian situation near the highway 67 entrance to Mount Woodson. The popularity of this trail has increased dramatically over the past few years, largely due to social media photos of the infamous Potato Chip Rock, leading to large numbers of people parking along Highway 67 and driving dangerously or running across the highway in that area.

The Balboa Park Conservancy and City of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation have announced a joint initiative to  plant additional trees in Balboa Park. The new trees will help replace trees lost during the drought and will expand the diversity of trees in the park.

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

Have a good week!
