Well, we had a bit of weather yesterday but fortunately nothing like last week. I know there are at least a few trails still closed due to the effects of last week’s significant rainfall, including: Del Dios Highlands, Los Penasquitos, Santa Margarita, Sycamore Canyon/Goodan Ranch, Tijuana River Valley Regional Park, Cedar Creek Falls and the Beach Trail at Torrey Pines. There are many other trails to hike, so please respect trail closure notices when you come upon them! For the latest status on trails operated by the County Parks, visit their news page.
In better news, the Union Tribune reports that the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar has agree to open access to the Stowe Trail that will connect Santee to the Goodan Ranch Sycamore Canyon Preserve. A permitting process is being developed by the Marines and a date for the trail opening has not yet been released, so for now it is still off-limits.
The County of San Diego Parks and Recreation Department has announced a public workshop to gather input on a new trail plan for the Otay Valley Regional Trail System. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 14th at 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm at Arroyo Vista Charter School, 2491 School House Rd, Chula Vista, California 91915. You can also share your thoughts by taking an online survey. For more information contact Melanie Tylke at 858-966-1377 or email@example.com.
I’m seeing lots of reports of wildflowers beginning to bloom in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Predictions are that this winter’s prolific rain will mean an outstanding display. You can check out DesertUSA for updates or call the Park’s Wildflower Hotline at 760-767-4684.
