HIKE OAK OASIS OPEN SPACE PRESERVE
Saturday, October 13, 2018
This is a totally delightful hike off wildcat Canyon Road in Lakeside. The trail contains a lovely canopy of oak trees as well as picturesque open spaces with chaparral, as well as a view of San Vicente reservoir. It is part of the projected Pines-to-spines trans County trail system. It's isolated enough to allow you to see more of wildlife and few other hikers. Trails are well marked. (We did this hike December 2017 but other events and the weather kept folks away so we are repeating it.)
More information: 2.7 miles. We will either do a loop or out and back, depending on the trail conditions.
Please sign up on website.
