Description

Explore some of the San Dieguito River Park’s most iconic spots in the Coast to Crest Challenge!

From July 1st, 2017 through June 30th, 2018, complete the five River Park hikes listed below. You can complete them in any order, in your own time, or with the Conservancy—we’ll lead five guided hikes (one on each trail) throughout the year.

Each hike has a designated spot where you’ll take a selfie. Once you’ve completed all five hikes, email all your selfies to sdrvc@sdrvc.org for verification.

Everyone who successfully completes the Challenge will receive a special certificate and decal, 20% off coupon from REI, and $10 in Adventure Bucks from Adventure 16 -- plus bragging rights for accomplishing five cool outdoor adventures.

Plus, the first 50 people to complete the Challenge and submit photos for verification will receive an SDRVC cooling towel. And if you share your selfies and hike photos on Instagram and Facebook with the hashtag #C2CChallenge we’ll highlight some of our favorite pics!

Enthusiasts are encouraged to share their selfiees and other photos on Instagram and Facebook with the hastag #C2CChallenge.

Inspiration credit goes to the Mission Trails’ 5-Peak Challenge.

Coast to Crest Trail Maps are available at REI in San Diego and Encinitas, and Adventure 16 in Solana Beach.

4.4 miles/strenuous (east fork); 2.8 miles/strenuous

Hiking only. Dogs allowed on leash.

Directions: To get to San Pasqual and Clevenger Canyon from downtown San Diego, take state Route 163 north and continue onto Interstate 15 north. Exit at Via Rancho Parkway and travel east. Turn right on San Pasqual Valley Road and follow signs to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The southern trail head is located 5.3 miles from San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Clevenger Canyon is named for John Clevenger and his family, who settled in the San Pasqual Valley in 1872. The South Trail traverses hillsides full of low-lying coastal sage scrub and taller, denser southern mixed chaparral. Wildflowers emerge in the spring, coloring the hillsides with lilacs and other blooms.

The South Trail splits and reaches a 1,550-foot summit on the west fork, with sweeping views of San Pasqual Valley. The east fork takes hikers to two summits, at 1,755 feet and 1,635 feet, with views of Boden Canyon and beyond to Palomar Mountain, Volcan Mountain, and the Laguna Mountains. The east fork features something unusual: two wire-mesh chairs bolted to a boulder from which you can survey the surroundings.
