The Observatory Trail on Palomar Mountain is listed as one of the top ten, must-try trails by the Cleveland National Forest, our local national forest.

One of just four National Recreational Trails in San Diego County, its 4.4 miles meander by the famous Hale Telescope at the Palomar Observatory, making it a perfect day trip.

My San Diego outdoors adventures tend to lean toward driving, but whenever I go up to Palomar, I always take this trail, at least to the Observatory. It’s an easy one.
