Friends of Ruffin Canyon

Ruffin Canyon signRuffin Canyon is Serra Mesa’s natural open space. With more than 84 acres, it extends from the south end of Ruffin Road to Mission Valley. Its native plants provide an example of the Coastal Sage Scrub plant community.

Ruffin Canyon offers primitive trails. Access is on the west and east sides of Taft Middle School 9191 Gramercy Drive.

This unique habitat needs our care.
