1. Intermediate Group: will hike the hills trail, moderate pace

2. Introduction Group: a mixed flat and hills trails (easy pace-new to hiking/beginners)
If you are new to hiking, this hike is for you with mixture of flat and hills trails. The intermediate is a great workout with roller coaster hills. We'll catch the beautiful sunset! This is a dog friendly trail...

Duration: 1.5 to 2 hours for about 5 miles

***For those who are interested to hike the whole loop around the lake of Peters Canyon, today is your day as I'll be able to go with you, please indicate next to your name when sign up. This will add up another 2 miles with couple more hills and this is for the adv beginners or intermediate hikers.

1) Everybody should have good tracking shoes or traction running shoes
2) loose clothes- shorts would be fine since its warm out there
3) Plenty of water

Route: the intermeditate group will take Eucalyptus trail and be on the ridge trail with roller coaster hills while the other group takes the Peters Canyon trail on the flat for more warm up and will get up Scout Hill to merge in with the group on the hills. We may end up together at top and descent down Red Hill to the rest table. From here, options of flat trail all the way back or hills trail to the trailhead
