Plants of Blue Sky

Blue Sky trail

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.

The trails are open to the public free of charge during daylight hours. The reserve is managed by the City of Poway, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation with support from the nonprofit Friends of Blue Sky Canyon.
