While California may be the prettiest state in all of the United States, it is also, extremely populated. Sometimes, life can feel overwhelming and like you need an escape. Although, there are millions of people stretched all over this wonderful state, there are also places to escape everywhere. Tranquility can usually be found within a 15 minute drive out of town.
Santa Rosa Plateau is one of those tranquil places. It’s located in a bustling part of southern California, but yet, feels like you’re in the middle of no where! Lots of southern California is a desert and it takes a while to find beauty in the desert scape, but once you can appreciate that, you see beauty all around you.
That’s what you’ll get at Santa Rosa Plateau; desert charm. It’s 9,000 acres of gorgeous trails and wild life. You can hike, bike, ride horses, and picnic all over the places. There are all sorts of programs and field trips you can attend to learn more about the area and the animal and plant species that inhabit it. In fact, they have so much to offer, you might want to check it out for yourself and visit their site.
And, if you’re a sucker for oak trees (like myself); this is the place! Around every corner, there seems to be a lovely, old Oak waiting for you.
Santa Rosa Plateau is a hidden gem in southern California. If you need a place to catch some fresh air and clear your mind; this is the place. You won’t be disappointed!
