About the Event
Looking for a good alternative to waiting in long brunch lines this weekend? We’ve got the perfect idea to celebrate Mom! Pack up the car and head just north of Julian for an easy hike to a secluded picnic next to the alpine ponds at Eagle Peak Ranch.
Eagle Peak Ranch is a 541-acre preserve of the San Diego River Park Foundation and includes a fun 2-mile round trip hike on the Pond Loop and Canyon Bridge trail. The hike itself is easy, and takes you through green hillsides, oak forest, wetlands, and eventually ends at a beautiful canyon overlook. Kids will have the opportunity to help real-life scientists by participating in an app-based nature scavenger hunt along the way!
Please wear sturdy hiking shoes and sun protection. Bring water, a picnic blanket, and lunch for your group.
Hosted by: The San Diego River Park Foundation
