Join Executive Director Sara Husby for a moderate hike exploring the southwestern part of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Through ABF’s efforts, Lucky 5 Ranch was added to the park in 2001. On this 4-mile hike with a 550-foot elevation gain, you will see beautiful vistas and perhaps even some of the wildlife who make use of this important corridor between Anza-Borrego Desert and Cuyamaca Rancho State Parks. Considering the 5,000+ foot elevation of Lucky 5, this hike is a cooler alternative to other desert hikes in the summer.

After the hike, we will head to Nickel Beer Company in Julian for a refreshing Brew!

Meet: at the Sunrise Trailhead parking lot off of Sunrise Highway (S1) at 9:00 AM.

Bring: appropriate gear for the weather, a sack lunch to eat on the trail and plenty of water.

Hiking Level: This is a moderate 4-mile hike with about 550 feet of elevation gain
