Sample text

Mountain ranges north and east hold cold-air masses at bay during the winter. The bottom line is that daytime coastal temperatures nearly always hover within the 60°F–75°F range. The winter-wet season isn’t all that wet: Only about 10 inches of rain fall per year, most coming December–February, and there is no snow! Farther inland, up to 20 miles from the coast for these hiking routes, temperatures aren’t quite as mild, with some summer days reaching the 90s, and some winter nights dipping below freezing.

The inland suburban climate is not as benign as that along the coastline. Summer daytime temperatures often rise into the 90s, and wintertime frost occasionally dusts the valleys. Farther inland, in the rural zone around the community of Ramona, summer highs sometimes exceed 100°F. While these temperatures are not remarkably extreme for many parts of the country, it is worth noting that, around here in general, the coming of the sun-splashed summer does not equate to great hiking. It is simply too hot and too dry.

But watch carefully where you put your feet, and especially your hands, during the warmer months, as you never want to startle a rattler. Most encounters between rattlesnakes and hikers occur in April and May, when snakes are out and about after a long hibernation period. Ticks also are an occasional problem, primarily on—again—the nonurban trails. They cling to the branches of shrubbery and wait for any warm-blooded host to wander by. If you can’t avoid brushing against vegetation along the trail, be sure to check yourself for ticks frequently.
