East San Diego's rural community of pine trees, eucalyptus groves & new homes. Camping is a bit further east, along with hiking and mountain bike trails. Wildfires are common, so campfire restrictions are tight. Campfires are allowed in developed campgrounds only. No backcountry fires allowed. If in doubt, contact the local ranger.
