If you live here in SD do yourself a big favor and buy Jerry Schad's Afoot and Afield in San Diego

You can get a used copy of the 2007 version for about ten bucks and a 1998 (which I still use) for less than five. If you go on two hikes you will be way ahead of the game. Jerry Schad was a unique person with a great soul as well as being a champion hiker and a polymath naturalist. The writing is terrific. Best money you'll ever spend!

If you are into hiking, I recommend buying these guides to San Diego hiking:

Afoot and Afield: San Diego County

Coast to Cactus: The Canyoneer Trail Guide to San Diego Outdoors

The San Diego Reader usually has a section highlighting a particular hike.

My go-to quick run is from the Visitors Center at Tecolote Canyon to Genesee and back. About 6.5-7.5 miles depending on how you do it, and plenty of powerlines climbs if you want them. Also, I have been working my way through (sorry about the messiness, I'm on mobile). Great book and cheap, too. Also, I never run with people, but if you want to hit the trails sometime, shoot me a message. I am just getting done with a badly sprained ankle and I'm looking forward to getting back on trail next week!

Essential for anything hiking in San Diego.

This is the best book on hiking in San Diego County:

Comprehensive, easy to read, good directions, accurate advice.

Anza Borrego is under a 2 hour drive away and you can camp for free anywhere within the park, which is quite large. Right now is the time to get out there as it's not 100+ degrees.

There are some good hikes along the Sunrise Highway in the Laguna Mountains if you want hikes that aren't crowded with people like Cowles is. Sunset Trail is a good one. You'll need an Adventure Pass to park at some of the trails.

If you want a good book with a lot of trails in San Diego that won't be crowded with people I'd suggest Afoot and afield.

Pretty awesome guide for hiking spots, extremely in depth.

North Park (Tiger! Tiger! or Crazee Burger), South Park (Alexander's or Lefty's), and Hillcrest (Snooze Crest Cafe) have the best food IMO. Snooze in particular blows my mind, call ahead to put your name on the list as there is always a long wait.

Balboa Park is always a good bet for things to do. Besides the beautiful hikes and scenery, there is also music, arts, and other entertainment pretty much every weekend. It's a hub of entertainment.

There's weekly threads here for things to do on the weekends, and also many great groups on
