El Cariso Truck Trail Fr 6s06 Professional Reviews and Guides

"The El Cariso Nature Trail is a self-guiding loop that begins at the El Cariso Fire Station and visitor center on the Ortega Highway. The easy trail circles a knoll with north, west, and south vistas, meandering through Coulter pines, incense cedar, cypress, oaks, manzanita, coastal sage, and scrub oak. An interpretive pamphlet describes the surrounding geology, plants, and animals. Before setting out, ask for the self-guiding pamphlet at the visitor center.

From the west (right) side of the El Cariso Visitor Center, walk up the stone steps to the signed trail. Follow the dirt path up the west-facing hillside on an easy grade through a grove of oaks and pines. Views extend across the rolling hills and surrounding mountain peaks."

"If you’re unfamiliar with the natural history of the Santa Ana Mountains, stop first at El Cariso Visitor Center along Ortega Highway. Inside the small center (open on weekends), you’ll find some small but instructive exhibits on the local flora, fauna, and geology. To learn even more, walk the El Cariso Nature Trail, which begins just
behind the visitor center."
