Nice asphalt :-)  Sucess!

Nice walk-up, interesting to see the trees recovering from the fire.

Route Climbed: Cuyamaca Peak Date Climbed: November 5th, 2005  Sucess!

I've done this hike before. Today, I pushed the threshold and did the ascent in 40 minutes. I then ran to the bottom. Total time was 1 hour 5 minutes. Not bad.

Route Climbed: Cuyamaca Peak fire road Date Climbed: October 30, 2005 and many previous dates  Sucess!

Although most of the forest in the park was incinerated by the Cedar fire, a good bit of forest (including a beautiful stand of sugar pines) just below the Cuyamaca Peak summit survived. So the Cuyamaca peak hike isn't complete desolation. There's enough living forest near the summit to keep the hike rewarding.

Route Climbed: several Date Climbed: several  Sucess!

There are many trails and roads that can be linked to reach the summit. I live just to the south west of the peak. I have completed several ascents via the telephone line road up the west ridge from Boulder Creek Road. Since the fire, the last trailless portion of this western route is a bit easier. Acents in the winter are to be treasured.

Route Climbed: Fire road Date Climbed: Sept 2001  Sucess!

This is a nice hike you can take right out Paso Pichaco campground. It was a very shady and beautiful hike before the fires of 2003. I have not had the heart to go back to the Cuyamacas since the fires, so I am not sure what it looks like now.

Beautiful views of East San Diego county. Unfortunately this area has had a horrible fire. I hope I live to see it in its full splendour again.

I used to enjoy this area year-around! Either snowshoeing, mountain biking, or hiking. It was a great place to spend the day!
