The Los Cielos Preserve Trail is a rocky mix of fun downhills and tough climbs. The trail iconnects to the Equine Incline trail in Elfin Forest Reserve. Great alternate route and has less pressure than the Way Up trail.

The Los Cielos Reserve is 700+ acres west of–and adjacent to–the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve. Once slated for a housing development, TECC was ultimately able to purchase this beautiful land for preservation in perpetuity.

Access Info

This preserve is bordered by the Rancho Cielo development to the south, the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve to the east, Harmony Grove Rd. to the north, and preserved parcels on the southern slopes of Paint Mountain.
