Explore some of the San Dieguito River Park’s most iconic spots in the Coast to Crest Trail Challenge!

From July 1st, 2017 through June 30th, 2018, complete the five River Park hikes listed below. You can complete them in any order, in your own time, or with the Conservancy—we’ll lead five guided hikes (one on each trail) throughout the year.

Each hike has a designated spot where you’ll take a selfie. Once you’ve completed all five hikes, email all your selfies to sdrvc@sdrvc.org for verification.

The first 50 finishers will receive a Hike San Diego iron on patch. Everyone who completes the Challenge and submits photos for verification will receive special certificate and decal, along with prizes from our partners: $10 in Adventure Bucks from A16 and a 20% coupon from REI--plus bragging rights and at least five cool outdoor adventures!

Plus, the first 50 people to complete the Challenge and submit photos for verification will receive an SDRVC cooling towel. And if you share your selfies and hike photos on Instagram and Facebook with the hashtags: #C2CChallenge #HISD #HikeSanDiego. We’ll highlight some of our favorite pics!
