Meet at 7pm and stay for the lovely night lights. Levee walk and happy hour tailgate party! Bring a chair, appetizer to share and drink. And bring a flashlight or headlight. The plan is to meet at 7:00 pm in the back parking lot of the Lake Elsinore Diamond Baseball Stadium. We'll walk along the 30 feet wide, flat levee that separates Lake Elsinore and the wildlife wetland for up to 5 miles to the peninsulas that stick out into the lake. The levee is impossible to get lost on, so walkers may begin later, or walk much less than the more motivated hikers. They have signs that tell you distance so you can walk as far as you'd like then back the same route. When we finish our walk then the fun part begins. Bring a chair, drinks and favorite happy hour appetizer to share. This has really become a weekly social get together outdoors...very fun group of regulars so join us. Directions: I-15 to Lake Elsinore, exit Diamond Drive/Railroad Canyon. Go west towards the lake on Diamond Drive about 1/2 mile. Turn right before the stadium on Pete Lehr St. Turn left onto the street behind the stadium and then turn left into the parking lot.
