Tucked into a small valley in southwest Escondido and set amid some
of Southern California’s largest and most beautiful ancient oaks,
Felicita County Park is full of natural, cultural and recreational
resources. It sits within the San Dieguito watershed and spans
approximately 346 acres. Felicita Creek flows through the park. It
runs year-round, providing water for plants, trees and local wildlife,
and contributing to the park’s natural beauty.
The park features 2.5 miles of multi-use non-motorized trails, seven reservable picnic areas, two playgrounds, a small park museum and restrooms. A TRACK Trail for kids turns learning into an adventure with a scavenger hunt that can be logged online for cool prizes.
Rich Native American and pioneer history have landed this park on the National Register of Historic Places. Guided classes and interpretive hikes are available by reservation to bring the area’s past to life for interested visitors.
