About The Event
Enjoy great features all within reach of any age. Start from Oak Riparian park in Oceanside and start off along the year-round creek that feeds Lake Calavera. You will find mature Live Oak trees and rich wetland vegetation. Keep your eye out for the spring that is directly across the creek bank from the park creek crossing. (Look for cattail reeds.)
Hiking include short out-and-backs with some loop add-on possibilities. From the park creek crossing, you can go left and hike about 1/4 mile along the creek until the concrete bridge in the creek. This area has some large oaks over the creek and sometimes a rope swing.
Another option would be to go right after the park crossing and head toward the lake. About 1/4 mile along you will enter the boardwalk area through the wetlands. After that the main route takes you around the lake and up to the foot of the volcano.
We will choose our route depending on the group with us that day.
