Spring is a wonderful time to visit San Diego County’s 120+ parks, preserves, historic sites, sports complexes and community centers across 50,000 acres of land. The weather is typically cooler making it great for a hike, bike ride, horseback ride, picnic or camping stay. Some 350 miles of trails take visitors through multiple climates and habitats, with hundreds of planned outdoor activities for all ages, interests and abilities.
