Description:

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. 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. A 3.75-mile hike one way is needed to visit this epic, well-preserved ruin but is well worth it! Note: The Jamul Kiln is on state property (Ecological Reserve) so you'll need to get permission from the Department of Fish and Game before making the hike.
