Furry Friends Hike – Piedras Pintadas
December 9 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Bring your dog(s) and join other animal lovers and the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy for an easy and family-friendly Furry Friends Hike at the Piedras Pintadas Trail (approximately 4 miles).
The name Piedras Pintadas, meaning “painted rocks”, pays tribute to the remarkable rock art that was created in the Rancho Bernardo area by the Kumeyaay some 500–1000 years ago. The Kumeyaay were semi-nomadic and extremely knowledgeable managers of the natural resources they depended on for food, clothing, medicines and shelter. They were intimately connected to the land and its plants and animals. Information about the culture and resource management techniques of the Kumeyaay who lived in this area for thousands of years is provided on a series of interpretive panels along the Piedras Pintadas trail.
Cost: Free – Hikers are encouraged to bring a donation of dog and cat food to support the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
