Looking to do an overnight at higher ground, does anyone have any spots or experience west of Sunrise Hwy or nearby that area? Seems to be some hills NW of the Sunrise Trailhead parking lot towards Cuyamaca lake that in are the park could have some potential.

Not west but pretty close...Thing Valley Rd / Morris Ranch Rd / Kitchen Creek / Cibbets area, this is the Descanso district.

You will need to obtain a free permit online from the forest service to be legal.

You could hike anywhere during the day and camp in the CNF.

Thanks. I will check that area out. I went out Sat. from Pedro Fages monument to Middle Peak via the Ca riding and hiking trail. One thing is whatever satellite photos are currently on GE, it's way more choked now in the hills just south of the monument . I planned on just walking up some drainages to explore the hills but there was too much growth. Have to come back with pants. I did go up a dry fall and may have found a quasi-seasonal seep though-very wet mud near the top and lots of green-with plenty of game trails converging there.

Ditto on the pants. I only wear shorts above 10,000 feet and below 1000 feet in the desert when traveling cross country. Too many battle scarswink

Yeah, should have kept a pair in my pack. Would have been able to explore quite a bit more.
