Stelzer Park has only a few miles of trails, but they include some steep climbs, some good views, and informative plaques. We'll hike most of the trails, about four or five miles in all.
We should finish by noon.
Meet at 9:30 AM in the parking lot at Stelzer County Park, 11470 Wildcat Canyon Road in Lakeside (Thomas 1212 D7, N[masked] W[masked]).
SUGGESTED ROUTE FROM SAN DIEGO: Go east on I-8 and then north on Highway 67. Turn right (east) on Willow Road, then left (north) on Wildcat Canyon Road.
There is a small fee for parking ($3 at my last visit). The fee is waived for seniors (62 or older) and disabled persons, but you have to get a special permit from the County Park and Rec. office in Kearny Mesa.
Wear good hiking shoes and layered clothing and take a light snack, water and sun protection. Take a camera if you wish. Call or send E-mail if you have questions.
RAIN? More than a 50% chance of rain will cancel the hike. If there is only a small chance of rain, we may still hike. In doubtful cases, I will wait at the trailhead. You must decide whether the weather is tolerable and take appropriate protective clothing. If anyone else shows up, we will hike.
