Join us for the Last Dam stroll before the time changes and we switch back to Tortugus!

The Las Cruces Dam, running north to south from Del Rey Boulevard to East Lohman, is frequently used as a walking path in the city that, unlike other walking paths, is sufficiently away from any motor routes.

The dam walk is absolutely leveled, (no elevation gain/loss,) which should be pretty obvious. Otherwise, the engineers who built it had a problem. The city light surrounding the dam is quite a view in itself, also, it makes it possible to do this hike without carrying your own light. However, hikers are encouraged to bring a light just in case.

This is an easy 5 mile hike suit for all levels of hikers. Lets come out and have some fun!

DISTANCE is 5.3 mi round-trip.

ELEVATION GAIN is absolutely zero.

FEES: None.

DURATION: under 2 hours.

PET FRIENDLY? Yes, have a way to restrain your dog, and if you'd like to unleash, ask others before you do so.

SKILL LEVEL is unbelievably beginner friendly.

TERRAIN sandy/rocky path.

WEATHER is TBA.

AFTERWARDS we may go for dinner together (will decide during hike).
