Sycamore Canyon Goodan Ranch Preserve - Poway, CA

Good Morning
Directions:
About 20 minutes from my hotel, here is a link with the address and some info.  You can Google this area and find more information as well.  For me, this was just a random green plot on the GPS near my hotel and I picked it for the morning wake up...

The Map

Trailhead - Millennium Trail

Heading downhill into the open space...

From the trailhead there are other options.  Mountain bikers in the area took a higher route and based on the map it all loops around and goes through Goodan Ranch.  However, the road is a direct route to the ranch, just over a mile of some easy down hill...

Cedar Fire burnt the area in 2003

Trail Junctions - various ways you can go...

heading into the ranch - Visitor Center...

Stone House built by Roger & May Goodan

The ruins

Trail continues beyond the ranch, but I turned back

Back up the hill into the morning fog...
