San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park

15808 San Pasqual Valley Road

San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park, east of Escondido, honors the soldiers who fought in the battle between the U.S. and Californio forces on December 6, 1846 in the midst of the Mexican-American War. Generals Stephen Kearny and Andres Pico both claimed victory. The battle was only one of the military encounters in California in the war, but it proved to be the bloodiest and most controversial as to the outcome. The park has been set aside, not as a monument to war, but as a reminder of the human ideals, actions and passions that can drive nations to bloodshed.

Really cool little museum. Very well done. Nice facilities. Very friendly staff. A great stop. They also have some good artifacts from the time, including cannons. Glad I stopped by.

Great place to learn a little history and doesn't take much time to do it. Also some short trails that give you different views, which San Diego has so many of those . History is so important and the presentation is great here, especially on 1st Sunday of each month.

San Pasqual Valley is beautiful this time of year. The rain makes the hills green and the view from the trail behind the visitor center takes in the whole of the valley. The chaparral is healthy and growing, and there are usually many wild flowers along the trail.

The best thing about this place is that you can bring in your food. This place is dirty. A lil pricey on the tickets but the lady who helped me gave us a discount so that was really cool. Overall if you like hiking and nature and don't mind the manure smell it's a good time to take family
