Mar 31, 2024, at 9:14 AM, Trails in Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve are closed due to rain until further notice. Following is the messages from Park Ranger Megan Delaney:

Hello all,

With the sustained local showers over the course of yesterday and today, and more projected to follow this evening, we’ve decided to close the trails in Los Peñasquitos Ranger District. This includes trails in Los Peñasquitos Canyon, Carmel Mountain and Del Mar Mesa Preserves.

We want to avoid damaging trails and habitat while they are saturated and vulnerable. This goes especially for Carmel Mountain and Del Mar Mesa Preserves with their endangered vernal pool species.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation in protecting our preserves! Hopefully we have some sunny days this week and our trails dry out quickly!
