Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve is the perfect venue for a brisk, BEAUTIFUL hike. Simple snacks such as nuts or dried fruit and a couple water bottles should get you where you want to go.  5.5mi total distance.

After our hike we will head over to EL TORITO Mexican Restaurant on Mira Mesa Blvd. to hang out and suck down beer, margarita or soda. Lunch food available too.

Host Metal Matty will be waiting at the TABLES AREA and be there by 9:15am wearing a plain, yellow T-shirt. Very easy to find once you get into the lot. Parking is rarely a problem.

Boots are not necessary for traction but walking/training shoes with good padding in order to handle some rocky areas are suggested at minimum.
Hat and or sunscreen also suggested

See you on the trail!

Make sure you go to the TRAIL HEAD WEST, Not the North East BLACK MTN. entrance. has the location listed as Los Penasquitos Trail Head (West). I made sure the link I posted is hitting the right coordinates on SORRENTO VALLEY BLVD.

    Had great fun today with Samara despite getting lost! And for future reference, a google maps link is probably most descriptive for the meetup location.,-117.1865789,13z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x20ba8abc039934a8

    Isabel and Diana ... sorry you had trouble finding the right spot. Unfortunately, this hike entrance can be a challenge using GPS which is why I tried to be so specific in the write up. Hopefully you can make it next time.

    I wasn't able to find the address. GPS kept taking me to a different place. Sorry !!! I'm sure there will be another time to do the hike.

    Metal, my iPhone was not smart enough to locate the address. I finally gave up, bummer. Next time I will bring a smarter GPS. Sorry missed you guys
