El Corazon

While the ” El Corazon Specific Plan” excludes bikes and equestrians, and contains very little trail, including trail that is closed unless led by docents, the “specific plan” is open to change. Being a “regional park,” El Corazon should include a larger trail element being that the other regional/metropolitan/metroparks in San Diego typically contain a non-exclusionary/multi-use trail elements in addition to natural, historic, and recreational elements.

Tuley Canyon (potential future park), Buddy Todd, Parque, MLK, Wooster, and even Guajome among other parks could connect to El Corazon via trail and bike routes.
