Lusardi Creek County Preserve

16500 Rio Vista Road, San Diego, CA 92127
Park: (858) 673-3990
Hours: 8 a.m. – sunset, daily
Pedestrian access is available from sunrise to sunset, daily. 

Hike or mountain bike along Lusardi Creek and take in views of boulder-strewn rolling hills and canyons. This robust riparian habitat features native plants and blooming vegetation along the water’s edge. 

The property consists of approximately 195 acres along the northern boundary of the City of San Diego, southeast of Rancho Santa Fe and west of 4S Ranch. The land is part of the County’s larger vision by to protect, restore and educate park patrons about the many protected species that live on site, like San Diego marsh elder, Del Mar Manzanita, California adolphia and graceful tarplant – all part of the Multiple Species Conservation Program. Other species of special concern include the Coronado Skink, Orange-throated Whiptail, San Diego Horned Lizard and Red Diamond Rattlesnake. 

A small, roughly 3-mile trail system leads the way to boundless natural beauty, and connects to other, very mildly beaten paths for up to 10 miles of adventure.
