Blue Sky Ecological Reserve

Blue Sky Ecological Reserve Professional Review and Guide

"A dirt service road leads you along a lush creek before snaking up a riparian canyon with boulder slopes on the way to Ramona Dam. The hike combines a shady creek bed, exposed hillsides, and views of the surrounding chaparral-covered hills flanking the reservoir.

The hike to the reservoir begins at the south end of the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve parking lot. The trail sign directs you along a lodgepole fence corridor dropping you on Green Valley Truck Trail, which is a dirt service road. The trail begins with a gentle descent into the creekside oak woodland. There are several plant identification signs along the way describing the various vegetation, including toyon and laurel sumac bushes, chaparral yucca, western sycamore, and California wild rose."
