Hello everyone! This is a friendly reminder that any of these fun places we may visit, we are a guest at. Please treat both businesses and trails with the utmost respect. We here at Hidden San Diego follow the 'Leave no Trace' mantra, meaning whatever you bring with you comes back with you. If you see trash on a trail, please do your part to help remove it. Remember, we are not picking up trash from another person but instead cleaning up for Mother Nature. Happy adventures!
There are two dams in this immediate vicinity as well as the remains of some old homesteads. You can learn more of the info we have received about the old history of this area on this page.
I have always been most drawn to the other dam as it is off the beaten path and far more hidden, but finally decided to visit this one. Although in a more public area, the dam itself has an isolated feel and was actually very neat to see!
The dam was built in the late 1920’s and predates anything mad-made around it. In an area that has been so heavily developed, it’s soothing to me to see these old remnants of times long ago.
I would not say this is kid or dog-friendly as that is a far enough drop to get pretty injured.
