The Sycamore Canyon / Goodan Ranch Open Space Preserves are managed by the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation. The Preserves are located between Poway and Santee, just northeast of Miramar Naval Air Station. The best time to visit the Preserves is probably the cooler part of the year.
