"Tecolote" means owl, and out next AIGA-SD member hike will be through one of the largest urban canyons in San Diego, named for this popular raptor.
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.
