We went for a morning hike at Hollenbeck Canyon. It’s a wildlife area in south-eastern San Diego County, near Jamul. Very pretty in Spring (January through early April usually) when the grass is green. The trails there allow for numerous hikes, either as loops or out-and-back hikes. We did a loop hike which is a bit on the longer end regarding the distance covered, but it’s still a fairly easy hike.
The tracklog of our loop hike is available on EveryTrail.
On sunny days it can get pretty warm out there, and shade is only partially available. Check the weather report before you go, and bring adequate amounts of water.
