Green Valley Falls
Our first stop of the day is at this hidden gem in SoCal that is a bit of an insider secret. To reach Green Valley Falls, you'll take a short hike along a half-mile trail for a glimpse of this refreshing waterfall near Cuyamaca Rancho State Park. Soak up the scenery and stop to enjoy the view before we head to our next location. Address: Green Valley Falls, CA.
Your next stop is Cedar Creek Falls -- approximately a one hour drive from Green Valley Falls. To reach this breathtaking waterfall you'll have a bit of hike to take -- approximately 4 miles -- to experience this beauty in SoCal.
Although the hike can be challenging, especially when the sun is out in full force, the payoff is well worth it. This hike is hard for many people so make sure you're fully prepared before heading out on the trail. And make sure to pack plenty of water as you will get thirsty, especially during the summer months. Address: 15519 Thornbush Road, Ramona, CA 92065.
Now that we've spent some time outside in nature at two of our favorite waterfalls, let's visit some of the top wineries in the area for great wine and stunning views.
