Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve

I love Santa Rosa Plateau for trail running. There are different areas where trails are for foot traffic only (hiking and running) -- mostly on the South side of Clinton Keith Road -- and others that also allow mountain bikes, horses, and dogs -- mostly on the North side of Clinton Keith Rd. If you are looking for thin (single-file) windy, up and down, rocky trails -- the ones on the south side (starting at the Visitor's Center) are great. For easier, flatter, wider, less rocky, then the Sylvain Meadows trail on the North side of Clinton Keith is the place for you.

So close to town but feels a million miles away, this is the place for a peaceful walk in the beauty of Southern California at its best.

I wouldnt go out of my way to travel here, but its a good hike if in the area as we were. We did granite trail loop with my 9month old in ergo carrier. He loved it! It was a nice reprive from the desert heat to go early in the morning. Costs $ that you pay on honor system in a container. Not much $ so no big deal. Many other trails but we didnt have time to do others.

During winter and spring months, my honey and I are here almost every weekend. The scenery is beautiful and they have trails for all levels of hikers. If you pay attention to the trail grounds as you walk, you'll see lots of tarantulas.

As close as you can get to being on the Reagan ranch without actually being there. Lots of cyclists.
