One of the hikes on this year’s Coast to Crest Challenge was out at the Ramona Grasslands. This was going to be a nice sauntering kind of hike, perfect since I was recovering from plantar fasciitis. I pulled into the parking area and headed off. The trail is nice and wide, as it worked its way through the grasslands. The Ramona airfield sits off to the northeast. Like all the Coast to Crest Challenge hike, there was a designated selfie spot, in this case out toward the north end of the trail.
I passed a few folks out enjoying the trail. One couple was walking their horse back to their trailer. He was rehabbing from an injury and needed the exercise.
I was enjoying myself as I reached the spot. This would be a lovely hike to bring a picnic on and enjoy the views.
Soon I found myself back at the car. As I drove past all those cars with folks working their way up to the Potato Chip, I felt sorry that just down the road is a lovely gem of a hike.
