DIFFICULTY: Easy to Moderate 3 to 5 miles
PLANT KNOWLEDGE: All Levels
This is an annual trip, with the path ahead only slightly different from the previous trips. This time, we'll take the path down to the weir once more, but this time we'll focus a little more on French Valley, exploring further in for early summer bloom. The oak woodland path back through the campground to the parking lot won't be the end of this trip. We'll eat lunch at Doane Pond and then decide whether to head for the dogwoods (Cornus sps) up the Doane Valley or go to the rim trail at the upper lot from the Ancient Cypress grove. I expect there will be a lot to see even though Palomar mtn has only gotten less than half the usual rainfall this year (normal is 30+ inches).
