Every year, CNPS-SD heads up Milk Ranch Rd between Cuyamaca and Middle Peaks from the swampy grasslands at the lake up through Ceanothus chaparral and into the mixed oak / yellow pine forest of the mountain. This year, we'll check the fire recovery growth and methods of restoration used by the State Park again, documenting a bit as we head from the viewpoint saddle to Azalea Springs. Down we'll head to the Western azaleas and shady streamline trail to end up at the State Park facilities. This trip is always a little different with flowers and wildlife along the trail so I can't tell you exactly what to expect except.
