|View of Stonewall Peak|
We had hiked Stonewall Peak before so we decided to do Cuyamaca Peak, out the back side of the campground. It's a longer hike with a steady incline, I think about 6 miles round trip. We ended up taking the fire road the entire way up because we couldn't find another path that we were sure went where we wanted to go. The lower half of the hike was through the still burnt out trees of the fires that swept through this area a few years ago, kind of eerie looking at times but beautiful. Once we got up a little higher the greenery started filling in.

This is definitely a campsite we'll come back to. We also want to try Green Valley Campground right down the road, it has a little stream running through it but it closed in the "winter." Julian is about 10 minutes up the road if you want your apple pie fix.
