Stories, information and comments from Palomar Mountain climbers
Story by Andrea Rossi from San Diego, United States, submitted on 12/02/2014
Palomar Mountain is a challenging and rewarding climb. At the top you can enjoy the view of Palomar Observatory. The road on weekdays is almost traffic-free, but on weekends you''ll find speeding motorcyclists. I usually park my car near Valley View Casino and start from that point the 18.08 mile route that takes me to the top. Weather is usually very nice even in winter time with a 15/20 degrees F. temperature differential from the bottom to the top. Enjoy!
