Today Zach and I hiked Combs Peak in San Diego (4.7 miles up to 6,193 feet) – and saw the rare United States Coast and Geodetic Survey marker dated 1939! The Combs Peak area is beautiful San Diego County chaparral landscape, with manzanita, scrub oak, buckthorn, red shanks and chamise densely covering the mountain slopes.
Combs Peak is only one of 10 named 6000-foot peaks in San Diego County and the 8th highest. There is an old Yuban can at the top, with a small notepad inside. We left a note and read everyone else’s secrets!
This hike is listed as hike #4 of the SD 100 challenge! I’ve only done a few of the other hikes, definitely need to get out and hike more!
