We will meet at the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park Visitor Center parking area. You will need your California State Parks Golden Bear Pass to park here.
We will head south out of the visitor center to connect to the East Side Trail.

We will walk the entire Harvey Moore trail loop of 6 miles and then connect to the Pine Trail for 0.8 miles. From there, we will connect to the Juaquapin Trail and then back onto the East Side Trail to the Visitor Center.
There are toilets available at the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park Visitor Center.
Pack snack, lunch & water. Forecast for Wednesday is cloudy & breezy with a high of 44 with a 10% chance of rain. Wear layers, bring gloves and pack your rain gear. The trails are likely to be muddy due to rains forecast for the prior day, so I suggest waterproof boots.
