    Laguna Mountains: Horse Heaven Campground


    Description

    Contrary to its name, Horse Heaven Group Campground has no equestrian sites. Instead, this tent-only facility can accommodate group gatherings. It provides a great mountain getaway for city dwellers to relax and enjoy cool summer temperatures, hiking and other outdoor recreation, just one hour east of San Diego.

    Facilities

    This site offers three areas for group gatherings: Lupine Loop can accommodate 40 people and 10 vehicles; The facility is equipped with vault toilets and drinking water. A general store is located 2.3 miles away at Mt. Laguna and Pine Valley.

    Natural Features

    The campground sits at an elevation of 6,000 ft. in the Laguna Mountains. It is forested with pines and oaks that provide plenty of shade, in addition to a meadow. The area is home to many species of birds, as well as the endangered Laguna Skipper butterfly. Little Laguna lake is located just a short distance from the campground and is an excellent hiking destination for photographers and visitors looking to explore the area. 

    Recreation

    The Laguna Mountain Recreation Area is known for great horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking trails. Visitors can get their boots dusty on the Laguna Meadow Trail system or access a segment of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail, which runs from California to the State of Washington. Wildflowers are usually abundant in April and May on the Big Laguna Trail, which takes visitors past Big Laguna Lake. In wet years there is water in Big Laguna Lake by December or January and ducks and other birds can be found. The trail presents a number of options to the user. A return to the trailhead parking can be made by cutting through the Laguna Campground or by taking the Pacific Crest Trail north. Families can learn about the area's flora and fauna by attending educational programs at the facility's amphitheater. Or for history buffs, the El Prado Cabin located at nearby El Prado Campground, is the first ranger cabin built in the Cleveland National Forest in 1911. The San Diego State University Observatory also sponsors "Star Parties" for campers most Saturday evenings during the summer (schedule can be obtained at the nearby visitor center or by calling 619-473-8547).

    3 DAY, 2 NIGHT BAJA EXPEDITION: 

    HIKING + WINERIES + BREWERIES + BAJA CUISINE

    June 28th-30th, 2024

    A rocky area with plants and a body of water in the background Description automatically generated with medium confidence

    The Ensenada region of Baja California, only an hour and a half south of the border from San Diego, offers spectacular hiking through the coastal and woodland landscapes in full spring bloom as well as an explosion of wineries, breweries and fine Baja-Fusion cuisine in the Guadalupe Valley. This trip combines the highlights of all of these for a small group of 8 guests who will also enjoy fabulous ocean-view lodging in one of the area’s premiere coastal communities. 

    GO member Mike Wilken, your guide, is an anthropologist and naturalist who lives in Baja California and has worked in the region for over 32 years. Dr. Gerry Chavez, driver and co-guide, is a local geographer with an extensive knowledge of the environments of the region. Both are happy to share their knowledge of native plants and wildlife, geology, native cultures and history for interested guests.

    The $470 per solo person and $940 per pair cost includes a 3 day trip with transportation starting from the Tecate border and throughout the trip, three meals, ocean-view vacation home lodging, and an artisanal beer tasting. Guests cover four no-host meals, and any extra wine and beer purchases. 

    This trip is designed for 8 guests. Lodging is double occupancy in our comfortable ocean-view vacation home with extra sofas, living areas, kitchens, and garden spaces. Our transportation is in a 12-passenger van with room in the back for luggage. 

    Cancellation Policy - 100% refund if cancelled at least 21 days beforehand, 50% refund if less than 21 days to 14 days notice, no refund if less than 14 days notice unless canceling party finds a substitute.

    MIGRATORY DOCUMENTS and crossing the border: Walking into Mexico: By parking on the US side of the border, you will avoid the long lines coming back, since you will walk back through the quick pedestrian entry at the end of trip. We will meet you on the US side and walk you through customs to our van. You will need to have a US passport and get a Mexican tourist visa (FMM) for this trip. You get it online, and there should be no cost because you are only going to be in Mexico for 3 days. Instructions will be sent to participants. 

    US Citizens must have a US passport for land-based border crossing back into the US. Non-US citizens should bring all necessary documents for re-entry into the US.

    For more information, feel free to contact Mike Wilken: mikewilken@yahoo.com

    The seven bridges hike is a semi-established hiking path through several neighborhoods of urban San Diego. Banker Hill, Golden Hill, Hillcrest, Balboa, and North Park are all visited along the way. At each bridge I will provide a brief history and trivia about that feature. The hike allows for the observation of different architectural examples, urban gardenscapes, tucked away historical neighborhoods, and a pretty decent workout. At the end of the hike we will arrive at Great Maple restaurant where anyone who wishes would be welcome to stay for brunch following the hike. I will have a reservation for up to the full group.

    Vermont St. Bridge Restoration Project by in San Diego, CA | ProView

    Hike leader: KJ Archer

    Date: June 30th, 2024 at 10am

    Location: Start at Vermont St Bridge @ approx. 4071 Vermont St, San Diego, CA 92103

    Parking: Residential street parking is available but expect it to be limited and include a small walk to the starting point. Alternatively, the Hub shopping center is located across the Vermont street bridge.

    Length of hike: Due to various construction projects ongoing in the area the hike can vary between 5.5 and 6.2 miles. The exact length and path will be provided closer to the date of the hike so construction paths can be verified.

    Fees: None except for optional brunch at the end of the hike

    Difficulty: Easy to moderate. Some steep hills and inclines and a few stairs but no technical terrain. Elevation gain roughly 350 feet. Nearly all paved asphalt/concrete. The Spruce Street Suspension bridge does sway a noticeable amount. People with unstable gait or fear of heights should be aware of this.
