Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch at Carlsbad California, is like taking a trip back in time to early California. The first thing you will notice after entering through the wrought iron gate are the dozens of peacocks that wander freely around the ranch. Stop by the visitors center and pick up a guide before you go off exploring. If you visit on the weekend, there are free guided tours. The ranch includes several miles of hiking trails, adobe buildings, windmills and many historic ranch buildings.
