New findings Explosives Bunkers Newer Ones
The Large Bunker
I was cross country exploring a good distance from the tracks, since they are actively patrolled now. Was actually looking for other things. I accidentally stumbled on this site
I looked up on a rise and saw what appeared to be a rock cave and was surprised to see a good size cement wall protruding from it
Built into what appears to be a Old Rock shelter this bunker is built of reinforced Concrete sheathed in steal . The local Pack Rats knowing a dry place to nest have filled it with Cactus spines to make a secure nest that will deter predators.
1st Small Bunker
Close by and in sight of the large bunker a second bunker is built into another Cave.
2nd Small Bunker
This was a ways off and a bit harder to find
Again filled by pack rats there is also a shotgun shell most likely dragged in by pack rats cause after all they are pack rats. This one does not have the more secure latch.
Older Bunker another Site
This appears to be an old Powder Bunker, dug into the sand it would cause any explosion to blast upwards and not outwards. This one was located over a mile from the tracks.

I apologize for not give out directions to most of my trips, trails change and I do not have the time to keep the site always updated. My hikes also span from the easy to the extreme, a lot of places do not even have trails, as well as extreme conditions. Some sites need to be protected as they are fragile and historically sensitive. So if you decide to hike some of these areas, do your research and know your limits, have the proper provisions .Every year many hikers die from not understanding these Simple Rules. San Diego County and surrounding areas are diverse in climate and terrain. Remember if you do decide to Hike do your research, carry the essentials and do so at your own risk. An alternative is to join one of the many hiking groups such as meetup or on facebook ,as well as other social sites. Not only is there safety in numbers but a pooling of knowledge.
