Backpacker Radio Episode #56: Scott Turner on the Best Hikes in San Diego County, 2020 Predictions, and The Top Footwear on the AT

Today the Cinnamon Connection is joined by Scott Turner.  Scott is the go-to resource for all things hiking in Southern California.  He’s the co-author of the latest version of Afoot and Afield: San Diego County, known as San Diego’s hiking bible.  Scott shares his favorite hikes in San Diego County, including the best short trails, long trails, the best ecological diversity, the best history, and much more.  We also cover the top footwear on the Appalachian Trail in 2019, our predictions for 2020, more horse facts, and Chaunce has a mini-meltdown.

If you plan on doing any hiking in San Diego County soon (or ever), this episode is a must-listen.
