  • Río Sabana Trail

    Status: OPEN

    The trail head is to the right of the picnic pavilions, up behind the restrooms. This trail was originally built in the CCC era of the 1930’s, but was long closed. It was rehabilitated in 2011 when the Sabana Recreation Area was opened, and provides a connection with the Tradewinds Trail, allowing the hiker to move north to south through the forest. Wilderness conditions and natural hazards are present. Vegetation and landslides between El Toro Peak and Tradewinds/Rio Sabana junction may require route finding. Your safety is always your responsibility.
