Oakzanita Peak Trail to East Mesa Fire Road
(7 miles, +1,200/-1,200 feet).
I’m back! I finally finished my financial research project, and it has been easier to focus on getting back outside. I’m ready!
Half Cookie and I set our sights on Oakzanita Peak, a minor peak in Cuyamaca State Park. I wasn’t expecting much, but it was really nice! The first part of the hike we climbed up to the peak.
After the peak, we doubled back to a trail connecting to the East Mesa Fire Road that took us through some lovely meadows and then a pine forest.
We eventually linked up with the East Mesa Fire Road for a gentle descent back to the trail and then the car. We didn’t bring lunch, so we headed to an international market for flatbread and babaganoosh!
