Smack dab in the middle of the city is one of the largest urban canyons in San Diego, named for one of the birds that live there — the owl. Join fellow AIGA-SD members as we hike the Tecolote Canyon Trail. The first half will be on ground that is fairly flat running through a small oak forest. The second half will have some challenging hills with great views from the top. This canyon hike will be a fun workout and also provide an opportunity to see countless birds and other wildlife.
