Los Penasquitos Waterfall Hike

Los Penasquitos Canyon

Event Overview

Discover this 6.8 mile loop trail that takes us to a small waterfall and some beautful scenery! This is a very popular area for birding, hiking, and mountain biking. Be sure to bring TWO water bottles for this hike as shade is not available on part of the loop. This is a elevation-friendly trail, so if you're worried about steep inclines, worry not more! Once we get to the watcer fall, we'll scope out a location for lunch before turning back towards the trail head.

All University programs require student participants to follow standards of the CSUSM Student Code of Conduct in order to ensure a safe, respectful learning environment.  As the Policy states, “The University is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy living and learning environment for students, faculty, and staff. Each member of the campus community should choose behaviors that contribute toward this end. Students are expected to be good citizens and to engage in responsible behaviors that reflect well upon their university, to be civil to one another and to others in the campus community, and contribute positively to student and university life.” 

Failure to abide by these standards could result in becoming ineligible to participate in Outdoor Adventure programs indefinitely and a referral to the Dean of Students Office.
