Valle Verde and Old Coach

The hike:

We hike north along the Poway / RB border to near the Rancho Bernardo Winery.

We drop down to the return trail which follows a creek to Old Coach Road.

This hike is a quirky blend of McMansions and Mansions, ripparian habitat, and some interesting sights including some huge prickly pear cactus and up close look at some nesting birds.

Approximate distance is 5 miles; Topography is rolling hills.

This is a loop hike so there is no turning back early.  I would say it is moderate-plus, mainly because we need to set a decent pace if we are to finish before sunset.

From 1-15 and Rancho Bernardo Road: take RB Road East -- turns into Espola -- turn Left at Old Coach Road parking is on the left about 400 yards after you turn.

We will car shuttle from the parking area to Valle Verde Park.

    Well Jim B YOU WON THE BET bee's do poop. I owe you a beer, just say where and when.


    It is a yellow liquid substance that looks like mustard. It serves the purpose as any other waste disposal method by any other animal. It is not collected by the beekeeper, and is not considered food by any known animal.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
