Hike to Patriot Trail in San Juan Capistrano

Posted by on May 25, 2014 in Hiking Trails, Parks, San Juan Capistrano | 2 comments

It’s Memorial Day weekend, and a great time to talk to our children about the meaning of the holiday. It can be hard for children to understand war and freedom depending on their age. Taking them for a walk along Patriot trail to the 9/11 memorial can make it easier. About Patriot Trail Yesterday, we took our kid to San Juan Capistrano to walk Patriot Trail. While we were walking along the hiking trail, it gave us a chance to talk to our children about the meaning of the holiday. Plus, we were at peace by the surrounding panoramic views of Orange County. What to Expect The kids took their time along the trail to ask us questions that they might have. Also, we made many stops to admire all the beautiful flowers and butterflies.

Los Rios Park in San Juan Capistrano

After spending the afternoon at Zoomar’s Petting Zoo, the kids and I ventured over to Los Rios Park in San Juan Capistrano. It is another one of those fun things to do in Orange County that everyone has been talking about, but we had never been until now. Los Rios Park ended up being a kids park paradise! The park was decked out in a full western theme, and the kids did not want to leave. They climbed on the large play structure, pretended they were in the wild west on the horses, and climbed for hours on the large rock formations. The park has swings, and in the summertime, there is a large water feature for the kids to have water play! The park is set in far enough away from the main road that parents can just...
