Palomar Mountain is, like, cool, and stuff. OMGWTFROFLMAO!
Elevation Gained: 1,250′
Difficulty: Moderately Strenuous (due to carrying a full pack).
Note: There is an $8 fee to visit this state park.
At this point, I feel like I have written and talked about Palomar Mountain so much that I feel like I am all talked out about it. It’s either that, or my pizza has about one minute left in the oven, and I am really hungry. Whatever the case may be, Palomar remains one of the finest places to go hiking, as evidenced by its spectacularly tall trees (by San Diego standards), rolling meadows, trickling streams, stunning views, and quiet, shady recesses. Go there. Do it now!
