Fresh Air: Nature Reserve Director Recommends Best Outdoor Spots in Rancho Mission Viejo

Rancho Mission Viejo has an abundance of outdoor spots where you can go to walk, relax and enjoy natural scenic beauty. That got us wondering: what are some places recommended by an expert who works there? We asked Leeta Latham, executive director for The Nature Reserve—RMV’s sprawling untouched preserve—for pointers. “It is difficult to choose ‘favorite spots’ on The Nature Reserve, because there are so many, but I’ll name just a few,” Latham said. “The Mother Oak is a favorite and iconic part of The Nature Reserve. It is the oldest known oak tree on The Nature Reserve and beautiful any time of year.” Latham also loves the Shady Canyon trail, “especially during the late winter and early spring.” Most of Latham’s favorite places are open to the public through The Nature Reserve’s guided events. “We have hikes and walks every weekend where the public and Ranch residents can explore and learn about the land,” she said. The hope is that through the events and activities, visitors can find their own favorite spots on The Nature Reserve. “Within the community of Rancho Mission Viejo, my favorite outdoor spots are exploring the community trails and catching any view of The Nature Reserve,” she said. “I also love visiting the RMV Farms to see what’s currently being grown for food within the community.”
