We will meet at a local transportation hub, easily accessible by trolley or bus. If you are renting a car, we can meet at a different location with free parking for the day. I will provide transportation in my personal vehicle; however, if you prefer to meet at the trailhead, this is possible. We will briefly go over gear/ what to expect. It's about an hour drive to most local mountains from downtown San Diego, so this is a perfect opportunity to introduce you to the local geography, and ecology of San Diego county. Once at the trailhead, we will have a brief safety talk/ stretch circle. This is a good opportunity to let me know about any health concerns, injuries, etc. We hike! Hikes in the area are usually 2-8 miles, start at an elevation between 3,000-5,000 feet, and gain range from easy to difficult; all of this depends on your experience level and what you want to see! Hikes will include descriptions of local flora and fauna, the ecosystem, lots of INCREDIBLE views, and tons of photo opportunities. Some hikes have swimming areas, and we will definitely take time for a dip! Photo opportunities are available throughout the hike, and at the summit! We will also do a group photo at the summit and at the end of the hike. After the hike (back at the parking area), we will have another stretch/ cool down. Drive back to SD /initial meeting area.
Il tuo host
My passion is getting others outdoors in a sustainable and compassionate way. The mountains around San Diego county are such a unique ecosystem and used widely by locals, yet not as explored by travelers. I work as an ecologist conducting ecological and botanical research at a local university, and I have worked and hiked in the San Diego mountains extensively. My guiding experience started in the Green Mountains of Vermont, and continued after college in the northern Sierra Nevada, north of Lake Tahoe. I have experience guiding kids, teens, and young adults, as well as teaching groups of adults about local ecosystems and sustainable tourism. I hold a Wilderness First Responder certification, am CPR and First Aid certified, and have a Bachelor of Science from the University of Vermont in Wildlife Biology.
