Gushing inside the uncluttered 4000 acres area of Los Penasquitos preserve, the Penasquitos waterfall is one stunning attraction to sojourn for, when strolling around the loop trails of the preserve. Flowing calmly through volcanic rocks amid many cultural adobes of the preserve, it is positioned at the end of the roundabout of the loop trails. With flat and well-designed tracks, the hike towards the Penasquitos falls is one of the easiest adventures which aids hikers with amiable encounters with more than 500 plant species and 175 types of birds.
As you choose among multiple trails which all offer unique experiences but lead to the same destination, you may spot rattlesnakes, coyotes and mountain lions during your hike. You can also come across mountain bikers and horse riders as you pass through poison oak among many other trees. So, keep an eye on those ticks, snakes and other wildlife that you may encounter in your journey. This tranquil yet wild trail to the refreshing cascade of Penasquitos becomes a thriving green delight after a rainfall. You will find yourself amidst the green in the desert of Diego.
