Walkabout Saturday Lenore’s hike

posted in: Subscriber | 0

Hello, Friends! I believe the heat wave will be over on Saturday and we’ll have great weather for my Walkabout walk in Solana Beach area (described below). So why not plan on joining us? Note that there is no restroom at the trailhead, but there will be one about 1.5 miles in on the walk, plus another two chances after that. Here’s a picture I took in January on the trail at San Dieguito County Park.

SATURDAY, APRIL 9

9:30 am

SAN DIEGUITO COUNTY PARK. Spring is here, so let’s get out and enjoy it on this approximately 4.5-mile, moderate paced walk in the Solana Beach area. We’ll start off hiking on the La Orilla trail of the San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve. Then we’ll explore some of the trails of the San Dieguito County Park. We’ll visit the butterfly garden and look for turtles in the ponds. Our climb up wooden steps (without handrails) will be rewarded with stunning panoramic views from the Pine Tower Lookout. We’ll have the fun of crossing a rope bridge and will learn about local flora on the Native Plants Trail. Be prepared for hills. Meet at the dead end of Santa Helena in Solana Beach. Take highway 5 and exit at Lomas Santa Fe Dr. If coming from the south, keep going straight at the bottom of the exit ramp and you’ll be on Santa Helena. If coming from the north, turn left at the bottom of the exit ramp then get in the left lane. Turn left at the first stoplight onto Santa Helena. Email, text or call: Lenore E.
