Dyar Springs Trail is part of a series of trails in what's known as Cuyamaca's East Mesa. Dyar Springs Trail crosses some beautiful mountain meadows and if you're quiet and attentive, it's possible to see groups of mule deer, wild turkeys, and even coyotes. Birding can be good along this trail, and mountain quail, western scrub jays, stellar's jays, dark-eyes juncos, and soaring hawks, and vultures. The spring is about midway along the trail, though the water is non-potable.

East to west the trail is downhill, back to the visitor center parking. Also part of a series of trails on the East Mesa, it can be included in many combinations of varying length, to suit your day.
