Let's Hike Los Penasquitos Canyon - East Approach

Hey there! Laurel here! It's a new year and a great time to get those legs moving again after the holidays and start thinking about preparing our bodies for kicking it up a notch in 2013! Let's start with an easy one, Los Penasquitos Canyon, from the East side. Find the details of this hike in your Afoot and Afield guide (4th ed., pg 107). We will meet at 8:45am (for a 9:00am start) at the Eastern staging area of the Canyon (find me with the yellow A16 flag) and head West about 3 miles and take a little break at the falls before heading back. This route is about 6.4 miles round trip over moderate terrain and should likely take about 3 hours. Bring your normal hiking gear: hiking boots, sunscreen, hat, water, snacks, layers, etc. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll see you on the trail!

    A nice, leisurely walk. Never knew there was a waterfall in this urban canyon! As always, nice people and a nice time!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
