Del Dios Gorge

This area includes a 2-mile-long trail that connects the existing North Shore Lake Hodges Trail just above the Lake Hodges Dam to the existing Santa Fe Valley Trail that runs adjacent to the Crosby Estate residential area. See alignment below.

The trail includes a 180-foot-long steel truss bridge that crosses the river as shown above. Click below for construction photos.

Project Location
In San Diego County, just south of Del Dios Highway, downstream of Lake Hodges Dam.

NEW PROJECT: In September 2010, the San Dieguito River Park JPA and its partner, the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, received a $1,049,000 River Parkway grant from the State Resources Agency to remove eucalyptus in the Del Dios Gorge (and replant with native trees) and to make trail improvements, including a viewing platform overlooking the Lake Hodges Dam. The viewing platform, in the shape of a rattlesnake, was designed by architect/builder Scott Stevenson. Construction began the first week of October 2011.
