Hiking Burned Santiago Oaks Regional Park

Last October, huge swaths of Santiago Oaks Regional Park were burned during Canyon Fire 2. Since then, the nature center, playground, and many trails in the park have been closed, although some trails are slowly reopening. Even though we haven’t had much rain this winter, new green grass, flowers, and undergrowth are sprouting from the ground beneath the burnt trees and shrubs. We explored 2.5-3 miles of trails in this park with some friends when I was 31 weeks pregnant. The park was beautiful with the mix of old and new natural environments and we definitely want to return when more trails are reopened, along with the nature center and playground.

    Hiking while pregnant? Woman, you are HARD CORE. And that’s all I have to say about that!
