For years, I have been hiking and surveying the trails and fire roads of Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, with an eye to preparing a more detailed trail map than the one now available. The Cedar Fire of 2003 interrupted this work. A possible park closure in 2009 may interrupt it again!

On November 2, 2008, I participated in an Outdoors Club hike from Paso Picacho Campground to Stonewall Peak. We took the direct route up. On the way back I broke away from the group and surveyed an alternate route back via the horse camps.
