Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden Trails is a 2.4 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Claremont, California. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, walking, and nature trips.
Really enjoyed this walk! I would call this more of a museum than a hike, esp since you get to learn all about native plants etc. It gets you outside and is rather affordable ($8 entrance fee for adults and free parking).
I was expecting a hiking trail but this was more of just a nice stroll being that it's a botanical garden. Almost all trails are paved & you can decide how long long or short you want to walk depending on what trail you choose to take. I'm glad I went though because with 2 kids under 4 this was so easy for them to walk on their own but get the feeling they were hiking. Note: there is an entrance fee for anyone over 3.
Great for kids!
