Ramona Grasslands County Preserve

Posted by George J Janczyn on April 3, 2017

Following our decent winter rains, now is a good time to visit Ramona Grasslands County Preserve since everything is green there right now. The two loop trails (just about 3 miles total round trip, rated “easy” in Jerry Schad’s “Afoot & Afield San Diego County”) provide a pleasurable 2-hour spring hike with a variety of scenic spots. The trail is horse friendly so you may encounter some equestrian traffic along the way. As usual, click photos for enlargements.
