“Escape to the great outdoors!”
Located at the southern end of the Santa Ana Mountains near Murrieta, the 8,300-acre reserve is home to mule deer, mountain lions, bobcats, and vernal pools with fairy shrimp. In spring, chocolate lilies, California poppies, and threadleaf brodiaea bloom. Thereís hiking and, on select trails, horseback riding and mountain biking. Tip: Sign on for the Saturday afternoon mountain bike tour.
So close to Murietta, the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve is just magnificent to visit with your whole family.
There aren't any difficult trails to follow (there were even families with toddlers)
and there are fantastic things to see.
The trees are glorious and even if you go on a sunny day (like we did) you can easily find some shaded areas underneath the massive oak trees.
There is staff at the Visitors Center, where you can ask whatever you want for the trails or for the park itself.
Great for family escapes!!We all enjoyed it!
