While this particular trail has been around since the early 1900s, the area actually includes a village site from the native Tongva/Gabrielino people that dates back much earlier.

At this outdoor museum, you’ll find a variety of ferns that are both native to California and others that are not and instead come from all over the world including South America, Africa and Australia. In addition to all the floral and fauna located in the area, you’ll be able to spot some wildlife if you keep an eye out.
