Stonewall Peak is located in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park off Highway 79 South and is just a 20 minute drive south of Julian, CA. It’s one of the more popular hiking trails in the area, and a personal favorite of mine! 🙂 At the top, on a clear day, you can take in amazing 360 degree views of the Anza-Borrego Desert and the Cuyamaca Mountain Ranges. The hike is just over 4 miles and takes about 2 hours to complete. Park across the street by the fire station in the Paso Picacho campground ($8 daily parking fee), pack a lot of water and some snacks for the top, and get ready for a beautiful and relatively moderate hike!
Sundays are lazy days for us – we sleep in, head to church at 12:45, get home around 2:15, eat a late lunch, and usually hit the pool, beach, or do a hike of some kind later in the day. Last Sunday, we chose to do a hike – a hike up an extinct volcano, to be exact. 🙂
