Del Dios Gorge Trail
San Dieguito River Park

You can be among the first to hike along a newly constructed trail this weekend.

On Saturday, October 24th, the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, as part of its San Dieguito Explorations series, is hosting an inaugural hike down this newly constructed 3-mile Del Dios Gorge segment of the Coast-to-Crest Trail.

Starting at 8:30 a.m., hikers will cover the trail that connects the existing North Shore Lake Hodges Trail just about the Lake Hodges Dam to the existing Santa Fe Valley Trail.

Before the walk, hikers will enjoy a continental breakfast with fellow hikers at the Z Café in the Cielo Village. The breakfast served at 8:30am will include: pastries, juice, coffee & tea, fresh fruit, granola and smoothies.
