Oak Canyon Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Oak Canyon, a sycamore- and oak-lined ravine winding north from the Old Mission Dam, is a perfect place to celebrate the return of spring in San Diego. Heavy rains never fail to revive the canyon’s intermittent stream and transform the hillside vegetation from dormant brown to festive green. By March, annual wildflowers pop up amid the tender new blades of grass, blooming ceanothus colors the slopes, and the pungent, sweet smell of sage floats on the warm breeze."
--Jerry Schad, Afoot & Afield: San Diego County (Wilderness Press).
Great hike with a gentle slope adjoining the
SD river what little there is of it.
Great 2-3 hour hike following the water! Some good geocaching in the area as well.
