Blue Sky Ecological Reserve is a 700-acre oak-lined canyon flanked by coastal sage scrub and chaparral-covered hills. The Reserve is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. Brilliant colors of wild flowers on the hillsides in spring, the songs of birds, and the tree-lined creek provide an inviting escape for a nature walk.
This out and back hike starts along an old unpaved road (The Green Valley Truck Trail) through a riparian habitat. After a mile the trail turns uphill and rises 800” for a bit less than two miles to the top of the Ramona Dam.
