Walking is one of the best forms of exercise and it’s gentle enough for most people at any age or fitness level. Walkers on average lose weight, strengthen their hearts, and have less stress.
With so many beautiful places to walk in Orange County, deciding where to put foot to path can be a challenge. One local favorite is Santiago Oaks Regional Park.
Lying peacefully in the City of Orange alongside the Santiago Creek, the 1,269-acre Santiago Oaks Regional Park is a nature lover's paradise. This secluded refuge offers hikers, bikers and equestrians the natural charm of mountain vistas, an orange grove, a meandering creek and a mature forest of many different species of trees. Wildlife abounds and a series of interconnecting trails leads through shady groves and to a lookout that features an awe-inspiring view of Orange and the surrounding foothills.
