This Week in San Diego Hiking – March 7, 2016

Don’t be alarmed by that strange wet stuff falling from the sky, apparently this is the “rain” thing we keep hearing about. It looks like the storm will continue through Monday, with rain showers throughout the county, high winds, and even snow in the mountains! The precipitation should clear out tonight, but there might be some more in the works later this week. Better late then never El Niño!

Don’t forget Daylight Savings Time will begin this Sunday. This is the time of year where we “spring forward,” and have an entire hour of our lives mercilessly taken away from us. To make up for this terrible injustice, I think we should all skip work on Monday and go hiking. Tell your boss I said it’s ok.

If you don’t want to wait until Monday, then consider bringing your favorite four-legged hiking buddy to Ramona Grasslands next Saturday for a Furry Friends Hike! Bring your dog and a dog toy to donate to the Helen Woodward Namial Shelter, and join the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy for an easy to moderate, family-friendly approximately 4-mile furry friends hike at the Ramona Grasslands Preserve. Visit the San Dieguito River Park’s web site for more information, or check out our Events Page to find even more upcoming hikes and events.

KBPS has an article about a recent decision by the County Board of Supervisors to purchase 147 acres of open space in Valley Center near Keys Creek Canyon. The property will be managed by the County Department of Parks and Recreation and will include multi-use trails.
