Jungle Tiger author, Mark Rainbolt, was my neighbor and I read his book shortly before his death in 2014. I thought it was a terrific book and fortunately I had the chance to tell him so before he died.
I'm pretty sure he and I were on opposing sides of the political spectrum but I always found him to be an interesting and articulate person to talk with on any subject. Jungle Tiger shows that he could write as well as he spoke.

Yesterday afternoon I biked up to San Diego's Stevenson Canyon for a hike. The trail's only about a mile long and has to be done as an out-and-back hike on the same trail. See the trail profile below... it's not a hard trail.

Up near the trailhead the trail and the creek are one.
Then it widens out into a broader canyon. There's a water and sewer main running the length of the valley and a primitive road that is the hiking trail.
While this MAY be public land I don't this it's a designated park.

Last Wednesday, January 18th, I rode the bus up to the start of the San Clemente and Rose Canyon hiking trail shown below.
San Clemente Rose CanyonTrail profile
I dropped down into Rose Canyon next to where the railroad tracks cross under Genesee Ave at the beginning of the 4 1/2 mile hike
Just beyond the midpoint of the hike the trail crosses under Hwy 52 close to the railroad tracks. The Mid-Coast Trolley line is under construction here.
Though it wasn't marked very well when I did the hike this portion of the trail isn't technically open. But I did manage to get through.
The hike really ended for me here at Marian Bear Natural Park. It's possible to continue on back to Genesee Ave and I-805 if your up for it. I wasn't able to flag down a bus on Regents Road so walked up to the bus stop on Luna Ave.
