Palomar Mountian

19952 State Park Drive
Palomar Mountain, CA 92060

Palomar Mountain is a gem in San Diego county with its over 1,900 acres of forest and mountain meadows.  It is said to be the closest we can get to the Eastern Sierra feel so far south with all the pine, fir and cedar trees.  With an average elevation of 5,000 feet above sea level the evenings are cool even in the summer.  This is a place that makes you feel as if you have really gotten "away".

What to Bring

  • Clothing and shoes
  • Sleeping bag* and pillow
  • Yoga Mat*
  • Camp Chair
  • Flexible and positive attitude
