Kwaaymii Point, at an elevation of 6,000 feet, offers one of the most stunning, if not the most stunning view in San Diego. This is an ideal spot to get away and clear your mind. There is a small .5 mile hike which features live oaks, black oaks and Jeffrey Pines. This short hike is actually part of the Pacific Crest Trail that actually was once an old roadbed that was chisled into the cliff. This was once a very narrow and dangerous drive with a steep drop directly below you.
The Kwaaymii were the most recent Native American inhabitants of this region and were a subtribe of the Kumeyaay Indians.
Gorgeous drive up:
Once you park, very quickly you will begin seeing memorials of fallen hang gliders and others whom have passed away. This is a place of respect.
Mother nature is a much better artist!!
It was nearing sunset when we got here so we only hiked the trails a short way. Crazy views on both ends though:
Evidence of fire damage:
Beautiful drive back home:
