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. It currently consists of approximately 1152 acres. In addition, one 110 acre conservation easement is managed under this Preserve.

Preserve Units::

  • Bathtub Creek - 551 Acres
  • South Rim - 134 Acres
  • Eagle Peak Ranch - 454 Acres
  • Fisherman's Camp on Boulder Creek - 13 Acres

    The Upper San Diego River is a key part of the San Diego River's ecosystem. It has many tributaries, including cold water streams. 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. Sadly due in part to fire and drought, this population has been lost. We are working to restore and monitor Boulder Creek with hopes that one day the rainbow trout can return.
