Cowboy Lounge is a 5 mile round trip hike. Located 9 miles east of Oceanside California. January and February are the best months to enjoy this hike.
Overview: Just a short 5 mile hike in the local hills around my home. The "Cowboy Lounge" is a small, abandoned quarry site now frequented by hikers and teens (who spray-painted the term on one of the rocks, hence the name). Lots of White Sage in this area in addition to abundant seasonal flowers and interesting animals of various sizes. This is one of my weekly hikes (there are many trails to enjoy in my area!)
