We have driven past the trail hundreds of times. It is a short walk from our current home and we always have wondered what we would find.
It really opens up into a large meadow area with quite a few oak trees, plenty of wild flowers and a few Eucalyptus Trees.
A little further along the path we ran into Laguna Creek, turtles and lots of birds. This heron was stalking his dinner.
And look at all the sparrows zipping around the area.
And we were rewarded with a nice sunset.
It really is a nice area to hike, ride your bike or do a little jogging. There is a bridge over the creek so you can visit North Laguna Creek Park. We noticed that just a few blocks past the park is the Regal UA Laguna Village Theater so we are planing a hiking trip to watch a movie and then walk back home.
We really were surprised that just a few minutes from our home (near Big Horn and Amber Creek) was such a open space to explore. Elk Grove has really done a nice job leaving areas within the city (or close by) open and easy to explore.
