Daley Ranch

Daley Ranch in the city of Escondido, covers more than 3000 acres of historical ranch lands, and undisturbed native habitats that are the precious remnants of the unique flora and fauna that once covered Southern California's Peninsular Range and much of the rest of the state.

We will be heading in from the Cougar Ridge TH not the La Honda TH so look at the map. This is a quieter side I think and a little more dog friendly.

It will be about 5 miles but does have a few hills to climb, I don't hike fast and am a firm believer in taking breaks to breath.

bring water, sunblock, snacks, potty bags.

    We all loved it! The girls are very tired and happy. FYI, I pulled 7 ticks off my two pups afterward, thanks for the warning to look for them.

    The trailhead is at 33°[masked]'N, 117° 5.140'W. Here's a link: https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=I-8+W&daddr=27072+Cougar+Pass+Rd,+Escondido,+CA+92026&hl=en&ll=33.194958,-117.08868&spn=0.052144,0.077162&sll=32.872667,-116.965942&sspn=0.418683,0.617294&geocode=FaQi9AEdAqEG-Q%3BFQi9-gEdL2oF-Slt8fJ1jIvbgDEKY7J5InzQUw&mra=mift&mrsp=0&sz=11&t=m&z=14.

    For anyone using N. Broadway, if I remember correctly, Google Maps is incorrect in that there is no access to the TH on Cougar Pass Road from the south. You need to take N. Broadway all the way to the north end and then turn right on Cougar Pass Road.

    This will be my first hike with the group. I'm up for a hike in the rain. Little mud and wet dog smell ! Sounds like a good way to spend a saturday morning :-)

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.
