Visit our new Nature Center!

The Santa Ysabel Preserves are surrounded by oak woodlands, native grasslands and fields of wildflowers. Set in a beautiful natural landscape of gently rolling hills, hikers, cyclists, and equestrians will enjoy an outdoor adventure within this combined 4,600-acre sanctuary. Discover more than 15 miles of trails through both the East and West Preserves including two loops that traverse through unique habitats – over the river and through the woods! Picnic tables and a rest area are available.

For your safety, stay on trails and avoid playing in the creek. Carry plenty of water, dress in layers, and wear sunscreen and appropriate footwear. 

Overnight camping is not allowed.
