We took the grandkids and the dog for a walk. The day was ideal, cool and sunny. Cattle roamed around, big ground squirrels and birds of every kind. Both grandparents were tired by the halfway point, as it is up and down and we are...More

My wife and I went between two days of rain in February. A easy, peaceful walk. Saw wildlife tracks, wild flowers and very few other hikers. Nice views. Free.

My wife and I have hiked here many times and see something different every time we go. It is an easy hike, we consider it more of a walk than I hike but still pleasant enough to come back.

Great trail for beginners and easy for the kiddos. Roaming cattle, and after the rains you will see tons of little frogs. Be cautious of snakes during the warm months.

This is an easy trail that meanders along a pasture, up a gradual hill and past a shaded pond. A real relaxing place to be.

Expectations were moderate for this modest hike, however, once we started our trek, it didn't disappointment. It amazed. What makes this location worth the trip is that it is relatively untraveled. Most people fight the crowds for the potato chip rock, and miss out on...More

We wanted to check out the local terrain around Ramona, California, and settled on this preserve. We drove over in late July only to find two big trucks towing horses in the parking lot. It's an ideal place for those hauling horses and giving them...More

I went birding with a group of people in the Grassland Preserve. We saw about 44 different species of birds, including a bald eagle and owls nesting in a hole in a tree. The hike was not strenuous, although you do have to watch out...More

A beautiful place to go for observation of animals and peace. The view is beautiful and the area is protected. It is not too far out of Ramona and easy to get to. If you like the outdoors, you will like this place.
