A marked change in scenery from typical San Diego towns and cities, Palomar Mountain is the highest point in San Diego, but is still one great place to live.
If you are going to buy a house here in Palomar Mountain, you are looking to get the most “nature” for your purchase, and truthfully you will get as much as you want. The place has grand views of California and affords residents daily retreats to nature that few places can offer.
Palomar offers a boon of choices for hikers of any skill and experience level. The trails here have been described as the best in San Diego by some hikers, and they will never disappoint. There is Adam’s Trail, the Upper French Valley Trail, & the Silvercrest Trail to name a few. The Silvercrest Picnic Area is also open to everyone. Not only does Palomar Mountain offer trails of various elevations, but it also has forested areas that are filled with pines and trees, and also meadows for residents to enjoy.
Another of Palomar Mountain’s claims to fame is that it is home to the Palomar Observatory, a noted tourist destination for people looking to experience one-of-a-kind stargazing events. The area, in general, is a haven for stargazers since Palomar is high and far enough from all the city lights that would normally spoil stargazing sessions.
If you think that residing on a mountain means not being able to eat great food, well you are mistaken, since residents in Palomar Mountain still have access to several great dining establishments. Mother’s Kitchen and 15th Hole Bar and Grill are easily accessible for residents.
If you want a place where you can be connected to nature every day, then look no further than Palomar Mountain.
