ADOBE FALLS (Mission Valley)

In my opinion, and especially for San Diego, this is a legitimate waterfall.  The scores of graffiti adds an interesting, urban touch which is sad (not only because the graffiti is pretty terrible) but also colorful and slightly surreal.  I guess that’s what happens when a waterfall is easily accessible and neighbors a college town.

This is one of the only non-seasonal waterfalls in San Diego. Alvarado Creek draws its water from much of Del Cerro, San Carlos, Fletcher Hills, Grossmont and some of the hilly areas south of the I-8 corridor from Grossmont west until Fairmount Ave. Here’s a great site to learn more about the waterfall.
