RICE CANYON-CHULA VISTA

Saturday, January 13,2018 @9:30am

 

On the scrub-covered slopes of Rice Canyon there are hardy coast cholla cacti. The California sagebrush plants coating the canyons exude a spicy fragrance in this peaceful canyon.  The canyon is now part of Chula Vista Open Space Preserve.  It  is a well kept wide, flat trail except for one section of a slight upward climb.  The preserve begins  across the street from Discovery Park.

 

More information: approximately 3.5 miles out and back
