Los Penasquitos

Like Black Mountain, this trail is almost in my backyard. While I have hiked it numerous times, I was respecting the rules of the San Diego County Parks’ Tour Our Trails Challenge and hiked it again. I really did not feel like taking many photos beyond the required one at the waterfall. I will say, if you have never hiked it, please do so.


I am an avid peak bagger, sometimes backpacker, and former sea-kayaker living in San Diego. In 2019, I became the third person to complete the San Diego 100 Peak Challenge. Not stopping with that accomplishment, I set my sights on the harder San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list, which I completed in 2021. In addition, I have conquered several Six-Pack of Peaks challenges (SoCal, San Diego, and Arizona-Winter). Beyond attempting the San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list a second time, I am looking forward to exploring new summits and new adventures across the southwest.
