Location: Behind Trolley Barn Park on Adams Ave (nearest cross-street is Park Blvd.)
Personal Experience: It's funny that it's taken
me so long to hike this canyon because the park that is above it is my go-to
park. Finally, after so many years I headed below. First off, this
is the only place in San Diego that I have personally seen Rainbow Eucalyptus
trees, which I gather to be a kind of big deal in the e-world. I've seen
countless beautiful photos of this tree and believe it or not, they grow
here! This park also has a very beautiful view of Mission Valley.
It looks great at night and there are benches to sit and enjoy. Go with a
group though if you go at night! The hike is *okay*. We went in the
spring and it was absolutely bursting with nastursiums and mustard
flowers. These make for great photos. The path just ends abruptlly
though. We did our part and began trampling the continuation of a trail and if
you explore here make sure to follow the slight evidence of the trail and help
to really create it! Maybe one day we can all help to create a path all
the way to the bottom!
Here is the park where you enter. Head to the very back and you will come across a beautiful view and a canyon below! This is where you will be hiking.
Rainbow Eucalyptus trees grow in the back of the park too! This is kinda a big deal!
We hopped a little fence and headed down below:
Came across a person's home made out of palm leaves. Interesting!
