Fire Recovery in Cuyamaca State Park

HARD DIFFICULTY +/- 7.0 miles

PLANT KNOWLEDGE: All Levels, many specific terms

For anyone that is unaware of the history of Cuyamaca State Park and the Cleveland Nat'l Forest in San Diego County, the 2003 Cedar Fire devastated the yellow pine forest that covered Middle peak and Cuyamaca Peak. Since then, the park has gone through many phases of renewal and out of balance response cycles. In addition to the many montane and chaparral native plant species we'll find on the long trail, we'll take an in depth look at natural and human-driven methods of recovery. This is an interpretive walk over a great breadth of a place that is very special for many reasons.
