The Oak Glen Wetlands Conservancy is very attractive, popular (including neighboring Los Rios Rancho "apple/etc. store), and well maintained. There is a steep 700 foot rise to Preservation Point, the end of the Conservancy. Here there is a easy to cross Gate to the fire road which is 20 feet away. I've checked with the local sheriffs department and Fire and Forestry. The fire road is used by hikers and bikers regularly. It was however advised that you do not drop down via the fire roads into Oak Glen housing or the housing along Wildwood Canyon Road. The long down is characterized by almost continuous ridge views down into the valleys.
