A business executive in San Diego, California, Brian Borg has extensive experience in areas such as organizing human resources, managing risk, and developing business strategies. From his home in San Diego, Brian Borg enjoys camping with his family in nearby areas such as at Cuyamaca Rancho State Park.

Encompassing oak woodlands, pine forests, and creek-laced meadows, Cuyamaca Rancho State Park attracts numerous day visitors and overnight campers who come to enjoy its delightful scenery and hike more than 100 miles of trails. The park offers two family campgrounds, including Paso Picacho.

Located at about 5,000 feet of elevation, Paso Picacho supplies 85 reservable campsites, each with a fire ring and picnic table. Other amenities in the campground include shared water faucets, restrooms, and ice and firewood available for purchase. The reservation fee of $30 per night includes up to eight people and one vehicle.

Some of the park’s best hikes begin in Paso Picacho, including a three-and-a-half-mile trail to Cuyamaca Peak and a two-mile trek to Stonewall Peak. Lake Cuyamaca, suitable for boating and fishing, also lies only a couple of miles from the campground.
