If you’re looking for Fall colors in Southern California, Palomar Mountain is the place to go. Located an hour and a half outside of San Diego or two and a half hours outside of Los Angeles, this State Park offers gorgeous views and a spectacular forest to walk through. My favorite trail is the Doane Nature Trail, where I found the most majestic Incense Cedar Tree.
Entrance to the park is $10 per vehicle. There were many motorcyclists on the road leading up the mountain, drive with caution. Bring layers of clothing. Definitely bring food & water with you. There are no gas stations on the mountain, so fill up before you head up!
Enjoy your hike!
