Buena Vista Park, located in Vista, was a surprising one. I had no clue how beautiful or extensive it is! All-trails and other blogs are saying it’s only a 1.3 mile loop, but I feel like that is only one of the options here. It is quite extensive looking at Google Satellite and the type of place you could return to many times.
Much of the hike is shaded (huge bonus), making this a hike you can do all year long and stay much cooler than you would otherwise! The trail will snake you along the Agua Hedionda Creek and oak groves. We found two secret swings hanging over the creek. See if you can find them! I will definitely return here one day and hike further. So much to uncover!
The hike starts off at a small pond. I encountered the cutest and sweetest pair of geese!
We stumbled upon a pair of secret swings!
