Volcan Mountain Summit Hike with the Canyoneers Sunday, May 5th, 2018

Sunday, May 5, 2019 - 8:00am

Saturday, May 5th, hike to the summit of the Volcan Mountain Wilderness Preserve. You'll join the San Diego Natural History Meuseum's Canyoneers for an indredible spring hike along the Five Oaks Trail. An optional continuation to the summit of Volcan Mountain is also offered. The preserve offers 2,900 acres offering views across the San Diego River watershed to the coast and to the Salton Sea in the Anza-Borrego Desert in the east. Due to the trail altitude (4,100 feet at parking and 5,353 feet at the summit), this 5.2 mile roundtrip hike to the summit is considered moderately strenuous.
