Wilderness Glen Park Nature Trail in Mission Viejo
Mission Viejo has some of the most beautiful trails in Orange County. After spending an entire morning in meetings, I needed to relieve some stress before picking the kids up from school, so I went for a beautiful nature walk at the Wilderness Glen Park nature trail in Mission Viejo.
I parked at the beginning of the trail at the corner of Los Alisos and Vista del Lago, where there is plenty of parking in the neighborhood. Once I got out of my car, I began my walk. It was like I stepped into another world while walking on this trail that is rich with nature while just being a short distance from houses and roads.
Part of the trail was paved which quickly turned into a bark-covered path. There were so many twists and turns to the path that I could come back tomorrow and see something entirely different. What I love about this trail is that parents can take their time walking with their children while looking at all the beautiful plants, trees and flowers. There is so much to discover!
The trail is interrupted at times by neighborhood streets but still continues. I recommend bringing your kids or even your dog to walk along this trail – it will quickly become one of your favorite places to explore nature with your children. Did I mention that there is a creek along the trail too?? Just another reason to visit with your kids! The GPS address is 22500 Los Alisos Blvd., Mission Viejo.
Safety warning: There are steep cliffs along the creek so don’t venture off the trail. There is also main roads that interrupts the trail so don’t let your kids run too far ahead.
