Penasquitos Canyon

Map  GPS: 32.9068, -117.2064

The Western approach to Penasquitos Canyon is a less frequently birded area of San Diego County. The trails are mostly flat, passing along the riparian corridor and allowing broad views of open grassland. Expect the year round residents – hawks, towhees, California Thrashers, and California Quail – and summer visitors – Ash-throated Flycatchers, Orioles, BH Grosbeaks, possibly Lawrence’s Goldfinches, and sometimes other surprises. Easy walking. Porta-Pottties at the trailhead. Participation is capped at 25.

Directions: Going north from central San Diego on 805, exit at the ramp for Vista Sorrento Pkwy, and follow the lanes for Vista Sorrento. Continue northward about 1 mile, turn right on Sorrento Valley Blvd., continue to the Penasquitos Canyon Preserve parking lot on the right.
