Fireworks Viewing From Volcan Summit Wednesday, July 4th from 6pm to 10pm

Wednesday, July 4, 2018 - 6:00pm

Wednesday, July 4th from 6pm-10:00 Enjoy a bird's eye view of the many firework displays around San Diego County from the Volcan Mountain summit. On the hike up, learn about the area's history and geography as you take in a coastal sunset while waiting for the fireworks to begin!

We will arrive at the summit just as the sun sets to enjoy the coastal views. Then around 9pm, we'll enjoy the many fireworks displays from around the county. We will be on the summit for about an hour before the fireworks start. It is close to a full moon, so we will hike back down to the trailhead in the moonlight, but you'll still need to carry a fully-charged flashlight.

This hike is moderately strenuous with an elevation gain of approximately 1,000 ft. in 2 miles and a total round-trip distance of approximately 7 miles. Dress in layers as the temperature can change dramatically as we reach the summit. Wear proper hiking footwear and bring plenty of water, a snack for the summit, and a fully-charged flashlight for the hike back down.
