Hey Everyone,

Let's get out in the gorgeous September weather down at the beach and do a bitchen canyon hike with spectacular views! I know, sounds awful...

After half a mile of easy going trail on the canyon floor, the hike starts an aggressive climb but it's well worth being rewarded with the views at the top. It's really nothing to cry over. The walls of the canyon offer unusual, volcanic outcroppings and shapes, which add a nice visual interest. Then it's downhill all the way! We'll finish off the hike with brunch at the Coral Beach Cantina. They have something for everyone, including homemade jalapeno corn bread that a few of us had fought over Yummy!

DISTANCE: 3 miles

ELEV. GAIN: 750 ft.

TRAIL: looped, single track, packed earth trail with some sandy parts.

DIRECTIONS: Take Kanan Dume Road to PCH and make a right. Go about 1 mile and turn right on Bonsall Drive, (if you pass Zuma Beach, you've gone too far). Drive north on Bonsall Drive for one more mile to the dirt parking lot at the end of the road.


Anyone attending this hike is bound by the terms and conditions set forth in my DISCLAIMER on the Pages Tab. Read it, live it, love it....
