I did a hike with a group of 5 Saturday, Feb. 13. We started at 8:30 and did 3 +/- miles. Enjoyed the beauty of this area. The wildflowers weren't out, or maybe we missed them. The trail to Barbara's Lake is smooth and level but after that it climbs and will give some a challenge. The trail down was steep, with gullies. It looked like OC Parks put gravel/large stones on the down trails to prevent complete wash out. I'm sure it helped but the stones were loose underfoot. I recommend a walking stick.

Maybe 5 miles if you do both inside and outside loops, so this is great for beginner or more advanced depending on what you do. If you go in Spring, you will get to see all the wildflowers

Easy (relatively flat) hike to Barbara's Lake where you may get lucky and spot the osprey. Good honor system parking lot and well marked paths. Recommend going in the morning when it's cool. We did a three mile loop and then headed out for a great lunch at Han's.

Cool and beautiful to visit after winter rains in February when wild flowers start blooming.
Avoid during the dry, hot summer months

There are few places that bring serenity to a tangible level, but the Preserve does it naturally. Here I find the solitude necessary to decompress from the hectic world we live in! It's a 'must do' for anyone who values giving their inner spirit the space it craves to just "be one with Mother Nature". Open 7 days a week!

Great little spot tucked away in the Laguna Canyon. You never really get away from the noise of the traffic, but it is a lovely spot for some exercise.
