Jamul Kiln

Saves: 95
Check-ins: 3
Also known as Jamul Cement Works, this brick and stone structure is an oddity - a lonely man-made structure rising 130 feet tall in a region marked by gently rolling hills. A well-worn path winds through the park although you'll have to trudge through the grass to see the kiln. Standing here since the late 1800s, this kiln has an air of a mystery to it - a product of a venture that never quite came to fruition for its original owner, Maria Amparo de Ruiz. Note, a 3.75-mile hike one way is needed to visit this epic, well-preserved ruin but is well worth it!
