For a great place to start your exploring in the Santa Ysabel and Julian areas, stop by the General Store and pick up some local goods.
30275 Highway 78, Santa Ysabel CA 92070
The General Store dates back to 1884 when it was built by John Curlee. The Store provided for the ranches and Native Americans during its time. The Visitor Center within the Store is a great starting place for exploring the area. The Store was reopened by Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO) in 2012 and gives visitors the chance to shop local artisan goods, nature gifts, home goods, guides and more. The San Diego River and San Dieguito River start near Santa Ysabel and the Backcountry Visitor Center gives great advice on how to hike, bike and enjoy them all!
