Sycamore Canyon/Goodan Ranch

It had been some time since I had hiked Goodan Ranch, so I was looking forward to doing it again. I got there early and enjoy the quiet as I made my way down to the remains of the ranch. From there I had planned to make a big loop back to the car. But Covid had turned some of the trails into one-way routes. While I doubted I was going to encounter anyone, I wanted to be respectful of the rules.


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.
