Come enjoy the peaceful forest and rolling meadows at our local Sky Island! If you want to tent camp with us at Cedar Grove Group Campground on Saturday night, you must make a reservation in advance by emailing Check in is from 2pm until dark on Saturday; check out is by 12pm Sunday.  Preference goes to members and the camp site is limited to 15  people. The cost is $10 per adult (over 18); meals on your own – but feel free to bring something to share as an appetizer or dessert.


Both hikes begin at the Cedar Grove Group Campground – meet at 3pm on Saturday; 8am on Sunday. Sorry, dogs are not allowed on the Palomar trail system.


Hikes are subject to cancellation if there is a heat warning in effect, if there is steady rain one hour before, or if there has been substantial rain during the 24 hour period before the hike. If you want an email notice of cancellation, email at least two days before the event. Otherwise, pre-registration is not required and all are welcome. Because cell service is spotty on the mountain, it may be impossible to send an email to cancel the Saturday morning hike – watch the weather! Questions:
