There are 23 trails in the park, and each one provides a view of the beauty which includes grassland hills and slopes, woodland canyons, and some amazing rock formations. Keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife that live on the banks of the three streams in the park, and make sure to stop at Vista Lookout on your visit. It will give you a spectacular view of Red Rock Canyon and Orange County.
You can’t explore the outdoors in SoCal without stopping at a beach to take in the majestic Pacific waves and the warm sunshine. Oceanside Beach is easy to access, with parking available in metered lots, and even free along residential streets. Compared to other beaches in SoCal, Oceanside has a relatively small crowd, but there is plenty to do when you arrive. Feel free to surf, kayak, fish, jog, or even take your bicycle for a ride along the boardwalk. When you need to grab a bite to eat, stop at one of the easily accessible restaurants near the beach.
