  • The Nature Center is awesome! There are several hiking trails of various levels and the campground is clean and natural. We found the staff at the center to be very friendly and helpful. The restrooms are also better than a typical outhouse or “rustic” restroom (air hand dryer and toilet paper!)
  • Informative worker, dog friendly and had the perfect hike. It was a great day trip from San Diego.
  • The Nature Center is really great to visit and there are a lot of hiking trails around the area. I recommend taking the time to get on one of them.
  • This place is beautiful! You can walk a few different trails and the views are awesome!
  • Staff is very helpful, parking is easy. Lots of paths to take, all clear and gorgeous views everywhere of course
