COAST TO CREST TRAIL DAMAGED
posted January 18. 2016

The copious rains of the past few weeks have loosened the ground and intensified the San Dieguito river flow.

A landslide has damaged the Coast to Crest trail south of Horse Park as is shown in the photograph. Rangers have posted signage preventing access to the trail. JPA staff will soon meet with Coastal Commission staff to discuss what measures should be taken to restore passage along the trail.

From the mountains to the sea, the 55-mile-long San Dieguito River originates at Volcan Mountain in the Cleveland National Forest.  From there, it meanders through Lake Sutherland, San Pasqual Valley, Lake Hodges, the Del Dios Gorge and the San Dieguito Lagoon to the river’s mouth in Del Mar.  The river and its major tributaries flow through sensitive natural habitats, including oak/pine woodlands, sage scrub, and coastal wetlands, creating a network of critical wildlife habitats.
