Ramona Grasslands

After the pair of adventures the day before, I opted for something a bit more on the mild side. Since the Ramona Trails Challenge was underway, why not tackle one of the April trails? Ramona Grasslands seemed to fit the bill perfectly. I opted to hike the route clockwise, doing a section of the preserve I had never explored. The grass was still green and there were still a few flowers out. While the sun was warm, there was enough of a breeze to keep things pleasant. A few others were also out enjoying the trail, including some horseback riders. All in all, it was a lovely 3.4 mile hike along the trail. Afterward, I headed over to Kit Fox Outfitters to get my challenge sticker for the hike.

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, Central Coast, 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.
