Hello everyone! This is a friendly reminder that any of these fun places we may visit, we are a guest at. Please treat both businesses and trails with the utmost respect. We here at Hidden San Diego follow the 'Leave no Trace' mantra, meaning whatever you bring with you comes back with you. If you see trash on a trail, please do your part to help remove it. Remember, we are not picking up trash from another person but instead cleaning up for Mother Nature. Happy adventures!

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!

Thank you so much to Organico  Wellness for sending me one of their CBD oil tinctures.  This is the strongest tincture I've ever tried (no THC so you do not get high).  I deal with bad inflammation daily from multiple unresolved accidents I've had over the years.  I work on weekly healing habits and CBD plays a very important part. If you'd like to be nudged in the direction of a recommended brand, check Organico Wellness out here!

We stumbled upon a pair of secret swings!
