Eagle Peak Preserve Conservation Area
The views of the Upper San Diego River Gorge from Eagle Peak Preserve are breathtaking. This expansive preserve is the flagship of the San Diego River Park Foundation. This conservation area includes the original preserve on Eagle Peak Road, South Rim Conservation Area, Eagle Peak Ranch plus additional acres along Boulder Creek.
The Upper San Diego River is a key part of the San Diego River's ecosystem. It is consider one of the most biologically diverse areas in the entire Country. Additions to the conservation area are being pursued as funding and opportunities allows. A variety of habitat types can be found including native grasslands, coastal sage scrub and Engelmann oak woodlands. Boulder Creek is one of two places where wild rainbow trout have been found in recent years. We are working to restore and monitor Boulder Creek.
