Some of the earliest inhabitants of the land are the Kumeyaay. Dos Picos Park, translated to “Two Peaks” got its name from two distinct peaks nearby. The park, located in Ramona, is home to a beautiful oak grove, some of the trees being over 300 years old!  There is a campground here as well as two cabins so you can extend your daytrip overnight!

While you’re in the area, make sure to check out Rashelica Winery nearby!

There is a nice loop trail you can take that will wind you uphill with beautiful views of the valley below and then drop you back down into the oak grove. I’ve visited this park a couple times now and have always found it very enjoyable.

One of the main reasons I wanted to explore this park was because of an old, wooden structure I was tipped off to that resembled the same style of the Secret Pyramids of Scripps Ranch.  Could it perhaps have been built by the same person?

A sweet plaque for a baby that passed away at just 1 year old in 1977.

There’s a small hike you can take that will guide you along a 1.4 mile loop with beautiful views of the valley below:
