Hike: There are many trails that go throughout many towns through this trailhead
Level:Easy but you can go for many hours if you want
Dog-Friendly: Yes Kid-Friendly: Yes
Personal Experience: Perhaps I am biased because I grew up across the street from this canyon in Serra Mesa. After visiting Sandrock Canyon again as an adult, I am still convinced that it is special.
The canyon is maintained with love and filled with beautiful plants and flowers that are not usually seen in a San Diego canyon. Like any hike, the best time to explore is springtime when all the flowers are blooming!
