Description

The boulders on the hilltop west of Lake Ramona are enticing from afar but less appealing when you get closer. Mostly a nice destination for a morning hike.

Getting There

Hike 2 1/2 miles to the Lake Ramona dam from the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve parking lot. The first part of the trail is very pretty. The last mile is a bit of a slog up to the top of the dam. From there you'll see the boulders in the distance, on the hillside northwest of the lake.
