I had heard about this trail system almost a year ago, but it was not until a few weeks ago that I ventured out into the eastern part of San Diego County near the small rural community of Jamul to check out the small canyon preserve of Hollenbeck Canyon. I believe I must have hit this area at the most green time of the year as it was quite alive with color. I put in about 16 miles while meandering around out there, but there is potential for much more mileage by venturing out of the Hollenbeck Canyon area on several of the fireroads that goes beyond this area.
Here is some of the scenery I took in on my solo day of play out there.
