Black Mountain Hike

We'll be hiking up Black Mountain near Rancho Peñasquitos by the southern route along Nighthawk Trail, about 3.6 miles round trip with about 800 feet of elevation gain. Leashed dogs are permitted. The views from the summit are well worth the climb.

We'll meet at the end of OVIEDO WAY (NOT Oviedo Street) next to Hilltop Community Park (Thomas 1189 E2, N[masked] W[masked]).

SUGGESTED ROUTE from San Diego: Take Interstate 15 north and Highway 56 west. Exit at Black Mountain Road. Go north about a mile and turn right on Oviedo Street. TURN RIGHT AGAIN ON OVIEDO WAY and go to the end of the street. (You can follow the signs to Hilltop Community Park, but they are rather small.)

Directions to Meeting Place

The nominal starting time is 10:00 AM. I will be at the parking area by 9:30, and at 10:15 we will hit the trail. We should return to the parking area between 1:30 PM and 2:30 PM.

Call[masked] for the latest weather information or check your favorite weather page on the Internet. (I like www.weather.com.) Wear good hiking shoes and suitable clothing and take lunch, water and sun protection. Take a camera if you wish. Call or send E-mail if you have questions.

RAIN? Heavy rain will cancel the hike. If there is only a little 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.
