Best parks in San Marcos

“The Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve has something for everyone. You can hike the trails starting from the Reserve entrance, or you can join the trails at various locations off of Harmony Grove Road and Elfin Forest Road. The roads run adjacent to a stream where an abundant array of wildlife, especially birds can be found. Additionally, it is an excellent representation of tree and plant life native to San Diego and California. On the weekends, guided tours and workshops are offered by the Nature Center found at the end of one of the more leisure hikes into the hills. Go to their website for weekend activities. Be there early as parking and events fill up fast on the weekends.”
