About the event

Let's explore! Annie's Canyon. We'll have panoramic views of both the Pacific Ocean and San Elijo Lagoon with naturally eroding sandstone walls engulfing you. Please note that the trails are extremely narrow. We will also have to climb a series of ladder like stairs to make our way to the top. There are no restrooms at this location. What to expect (copied from thenaturecollective.org) 01 Start the trail at the Solana Hills trailhead – after a slight incline you will come across a kiosk along with waste and recycling bins. 02 Continue the trail following a moderate incline and decline and admire the expansive views of the Central + East Basin. Green signs at the bottom of the hill will direct you left towards Annie’s Canyon Trail. 03 Take in the sights and sounds of San Elijo Lagoon as you wander among the trees and sage scrub. 04 As you approach Annie’s Canyon Trail, there are 2 options: (1) You can go through the canyon, which requires some strenuous activity, or (2) you can hike up the switchback portion. Note the switchback’s moderate incline (rising 300 feet in a quarter-mile). 05 If you decide to go through the canyon, keep in mind that the path is one-way, so you must take the switchback path down. As you progress through the canyon, the path narrows. However, you can use available footholds – and ladder-like stairs – to maneuver to the top of the canyon. 06 Whether you go through the canyon or up the switchbacks, the top of Annie’s Canyon Trail offers views of the Pacific Ocean and Central Basin. 07 Once you’re ready for the return journey, head back towards the I-5 freeway to hike along the Solana Hills trail. Prepare for a steep climb up to the trailhead.
