Afoot & Afield: San Diego County

We happened to wander onto this trail while journeying through Mt. Laguna. We decided to wander off the path of Big Laguna Lake Trail, and up a mountain. We wandered around for about an hour, and ended up onto the Sunset Trail. We decided to follow the trail, and were sure glad we did. The views toward the west were breathtaking. It truly lived up to its name. Wandering around the mountain was very scenic. Certain areas were totally covered in forest. It reminded me of a scene from an old Disney cartoon. The trail was quiet and cool. Being that it was in December, there were still patches of snow here and there. As we wound around East, the views of the small valley were also very tranquil. I had remarked that I couldn't believe that this was all in our own backyard. It was hard to believe at times that we were still in San Diego County. Many scenes reminded me of my trips to Colorado. This trail is a must for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. This is a trail well worth the drive, and effort.
