Volcan Mountain Sunrise Hike - Sunday, June 2nd, 2019

Sunday, June 2, 2019 - 5:30am

Sunday, June 2nd rise with (before?) the sun and stretch your legs on a ranger-led sunrise hike up to the summit of the Volcan Mountain Wilderness Preserve.

The summit of Volcan Mountain boasts beautiful panoramic views of both the Anza Borrego desert and San Diego County all the way to the coast. Getting to see the sunrise as we hike to the summit will be a wonderful sight to see!

This 5.4 mile round-trip hike is considered strenuous and takes about 3 hours. Be prepared for a 1,000 foot elevation gain to the summit of the Wilderness Preserve.

We will begin hiking promptly at 5:30 so please arrive a little early.

Time: 5:30 am - 8:30 am

Wear: sturdy hiking shoes and dress in layers as the temperature can change as we reach the summit.

Bring: a headlamp or flashlight, snacks and plenty of water

Park: along Farmer Road and walk 300 ft. up the gravel driveway to meet at the Hubbell gateway at 10:00 am. Please consider carpooling with people from your area -- we can all do our part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help the county meet its Climate Action Plan goals.

Location: 1209 Farmer Road, Julian, CA 92036; just north of Wynola Road intersection with Farmer Road.
