West Sycamore

West Sycamore Staging Area

This area of Mission Trails Regional Park encompasses 1,128 acres of native chaparral habitat and includes seven miles of trails to be explored by park users. This acreage connects to the County of San Diego preserve Goodan Ranch and offers expansive views of Poway’s rolling hills and beyond. The main entrance to the park is located at the far east end of Stonebridge Parkway in Scripps Ranch. The staging area has a large parking lot and a porta-potty, as well as hitching posts for equestrian use. Future amenities will include a shade structure, picnic tables and park benches. The gates to this park entrance are open 8AM to 5PM during the fall and winter months (non-daylight-saving hours), and 8AM to 7PM for the longer summer days during daylight saving time.

Ranger Geoff Hasenauer is primarily responsible for the West Sycamore property. He is available to lead volunteer crews upon request and can be reached at gshasenauer@sandiego.gov for more information.
