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!
