Combo Hike! Etiwanda Falls and Day Canyon Creek

Lets start our Sunday with a nice picturesque hike to the Etiwanda Falls and then continue on to Day Canyon Creek in the North Etiwanda Preserve. Along the way there are a few historical remnants of early water collection devices that served to irrigate the citrus and grape crops down in the valleys below.  I do these hikes often, and I guarantee that everyone will love it!  Starting straight up to Etiwanda Falls, we will see how the recent rains are flowing out of the mountains, and then we will head over to Day Creek, and enjoy the serenity of Day Canyon.

Lets meet at 8:45 AM for introductions, and plan to start on our way at 8:50 AM.

      Shirley, most of our hikes have a slowpoke "lazy" element in the rear. That's usually where I end up. But even if we spread out a little we still have fun..

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