Hike Adventures: Blue Sky Ecological Reserve (2 of 5)

  • Blue Sky Ecological Reserve San Diego, CA United States (map)

Length: 5 Hike Course (Once a Month, 4 Hours)

Instructor: Brian Remas

Session 2 Location: To Be Determined

Difficulty: Moderate

Distance: 6 miles

Follow instructor Brian Remas through several environments throughout San Diego County. Adventurers will learn about what they are seeing, such as the plants and animals, but also what they are not seeing, such as the people that called the area home thousands of years ago. Individuals will learn different hiking skills, health facts, “Leave No Trace” methods, and how to enjoy the outdoors in a safe way.

Our second hike is a beautiful journey through San Diego County's oak tree forest, the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve.  After awhile hiking this trail, we’ll jump onto another trail to Lake Poway (and back). The trail is filled with songs of birds, wrestling squirrels, leaping deer, and leaves blowing in the wind. We will be jumping onto several different trails, each with it's own beauty. The last time that I was there, I saw a mother deer and her baby, squirrels wrestling, fish jumping, and birds playing in the trees.  

Be sure to bring:

  • Athletic shoes (good for hiking or running)

  • 2 liter of water (at least)

  • Snacks

  • Jacket

  • Hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen

Directions: Exit Interstate 15 at Rancho Bernardo Road and go east. Rancho Bernardo Road becomes Espola Road as you enter the Poway city limits. Espola curves south after about 3 miles. The Blue Sky Ecological Reserve entrance is on the Left just after the curve, 3.4 miles from I-15.
