San Diego County Adventure Map
|GREEN markers are short nature trails, gently-graded pathways, and routes that are relatively easy.|
|BLUE markers designate the “moderate” difficulty hikes. These trails may be lengthy, or have areas of intense elevation gain. They may require some scrambling, but most of these trails are easy day hikes that can be done by anyone in fairly decent shape.|
|RED markers are for the “strenuous” trails. These are long, leg-busting paths that will require lots of time and effort. Some of these trails may venture through dangerous areas and require river crossings, backcountry orienteering, or more serious rock scrambling. In other words, if it’s your first time on the trail, don’t pick one of these.|

Each distinct Trail is listed once (unless hiked differently, such as reversing the route), to keep the list clean and simple. If we’ve hiked that Trail multiple times, the Guide link will take your to our latest Trail write-up, which will also reference and link back to prior dates hiked in case you want to see how that particular hike has changed through the years or in different seasons.
