Parking prices very per day, $4-$8, not sure if it goes higher than that. Not really a hike, but a good chance to walk. Can be crowded.

Spent my birthday in Seal Beach. We went to El Dorado Nature Center and did the 1 mile trail. It was a nice walk, enjoying nature and taking pictures. The other hikers were all friendly. Very nice weather & would go again.

I just went recently because I haven't been in a long time. They updated the pathways to make it easier to walk around. I went by myself and it was nice just to disconnect.

This is somewhat of a great sanctuary for wildlife. The walking path is long enough, but the rest of the park you should ride the car through to see it all. The visitor's center is worth looking through. Try to see all of the grounds...More

Hi Denise, There is a LB Transit line that drops off in front of the park. You would have to check out routes that connect from OCTA.
