A gorgeous setting encompassing 88-acres, El Monte County Park is one of the original properties in San Diego County Parks’ inventory. The spectacular rocky face of El Cajon Mountain stands high over this popular picnic destination where recreational opportunities abound! 

Enjoy ample grassy lawns, play areas, historic tables and mature trees. Travel up the hillside on the historic flume trail, to view remnants of early water transportation. Or head a mile west to a second property managed by the El Monte County Park team – the Helix Flume Trail – where more remnants are found, along with exceptional views.
