Event Details

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 you 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.

Volcan Mountain Directions and trail map here.   

Selfie Spot:  The scope at the summit

Difficulty:  moderately strenuous as you climb to an altitude of 4,100

Hiking only.  Dogs allowed on leash.

The Volcan Mountain ridge is iconic as both the headwaters of the San Dieguito River and the highest point in the River Park (5,300 feet at the summit). Ironside Spring feeds Santa Ysabel Creek, which meets Santa Maria Creek in San Pasqual Valley to become the San Dieguito River.

 The Volcan Mountain Wilderness Preserve is home to mixed conifer, oak and cedar forest, native grassland, and seasonal ponds. The summit features sweeping views of Earthquake Valley and the Salton Sea to the east, and on a clear day, all the way to the ocean to the west.

 Just as striking as the views from the summit is the beautiful Hubbell Gateway at the beginning of the trail. The striking entry monument was designed by local artist and architect James Hubbell and constructed by dedicated volunteers.
