Big Morongo Canyon Preserve

(Thomas Guide:((SB 616-J5) / GPS:  34.050398, -116.570646)

Rating: Easy (Flat boardwalk)

This location is always a spring hot spot and favorite PAS field trip.  In the caretaker’s yard, several hummingbird and seed feeders will attract many birds for your enjoyment.

Picnic tables and restrooms are available.

Bring a lunch for an after birding picnic at the bird feeders.


From Escondido, proceed north on I-15 for approximately 36 miles to the I-15/I-215 split in Murrieta. Change to I-215 north and continue about 30 miles to Hwy 60 east. Take Hwy 60 east then continuing east on I-10 approximately 40 miles to Hwy 62. Go north on Hwy 62 about 12 miles to Morongo Valley (a small town). About a mile or two into town, look for signs for Big Morongo Canyon Preserve. Turn right (south) on East Drive, a dirt road, to the Preserve. The parking lot is just beyond the caretaker’s house.

Allow 2 hours travel time from Escondido
