El Dorado Nature Center: El Dorado Park Professional Review and Guide

"This hike makes a loop through the least developed section of
the park in the southwest corner. The pastoral 105-acre area is known as the El Dorado Nature Center.

An interpretive trail loops around two lakes and meanders through the sanctuary along rolling hills, tree-lined meadows, chaparral communities, oak woodlands, and a stream connecting the two lakes. An interpretive trail pamphlet is available at the museum."

Good place to run. I walked/ran the east region. Will cover the other regions eventually. 🙂

Here is a peaceful and relaxing place to visit when you need to get away but you don't have the time to go out of town. It is a 105-acre oasis in the middle of suburbia. The trees are lovely and we encountered a wide variety of animals in the park (squirrels, sunbathing turtles, rabbits) and a LOT of birds: Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Canada geese, and a multitude of ducks. A network of trails winds through a forest and around two lakes, with options for 1/4 mile, one mile or two mile routes. The two lakes are connected by a meandering stream and the second lake is only accessible on the two mile route. The 1/4 mile trail is paved and suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. It has fun educational signs about the environment. The longer trails have a hard-packed dirt surface. There are benches for resting, water fountains, and another restroom at the furthest point from the visitor center. You really feel as though you are walking in the mountains even though the 605 and 405 freeways are very close! This place is perfect for bringing kids, exercising, bird-watching, or just seeking solace in a natural setting.
