The One Spot In Southern California That’s Basically Heaven On Earth

One of the joys of living in Southern California is exploring this part of the Golden State on foot and taking in the variety of scenery that can be found along the many hikes that exist here in SoCal. You’ve no doubt discovered a favorite trail along the way, but there’s nothing like being introduced to a new spot that you’ve never encountered before. So today, I have a new hike for you to add to your SoCal bucket list that is quite possibly heaven on earth. Lace up those shoes, grab a bottle of water and get ready for a spectacular view. Off we go!


You can find Volcan Mountain Wilderness Preserve at 1209 Farmer Road, Julian, CA 92036. Parking is free and easy to find along Farmer Road. Once you finish the hike, make a day of it and head to the town of Julian for the afternoon. There are tons of shops and restaurants to explore so don’t miss out on this charming town.
