Hiking Trails in Redlands

hiking-trails-redlands

Do you want to get out on the weekends?

We suggest a good hike! Hiking Trails in Redlands are of the many but, San Timoteo Nature Sanctuary has over 200 acres of land. The two main trails are: Cocomaricopa Trail used originally by the Native Americans and Carriage Trail, built by the Smily Brothers. Both restored in 2011 by the Redlands Conservancy, these two trails have a ton of history behind them. However, these days the trails offer a great get away for the family or if you need some alone time to clear your mind. Along the hikes at STNS, you will find fresh water streams, wildlife, willows, cottonwoods, eucalyptus trees, and more. Come see for yourself!

Oakmont/Oak Ridge Trail is our second suggestion for hiking trails in Redlands, where you can go on a 3.6-mile hike and discover fantastic scenic views. This moderate hike takes you through the foothills of southeast Redlands, you really can’t say that getting lost is an option since major streets are near by; even with the twists and turns it’s still easy to navigate your way through. Take plenty of water with you on this hike as the estimated time frame is around 2 hours.

 Get out today and explore the great outdoors in Redlands.

Labor Day Weekend is Upon Us!

Labor Day weekend is coming up, so it’s a time for many to get ready for relaxation and recharging during your much-needed break from work.

If you’re the outdoorsy type who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of noisy city life, there’s always the beautiful Caroline Park! There’s both a park and a botanical garden. The trail leads to an ethereal 180-degree view of the mountains. If you’re wanting to stay indoors instead, you can head to Open Door Escape Games! You and six of your family or friends can figure your way out of different themed rooms in 60 minutes. Or you could be the type that just wants to have a staycation at home! Pull out the grill, invite some friends over and share a meal together, which is our personal favorite.

From all of us here at Countrywood Apartments, we hope you have a very fun and safe holiday weekend!
