There's an awesome trail system at Canyon Lake Park that runs right next to the marina. Although the park itself is still closed for the season, the Madrone Trail is open and accessible. The trails total 7 miles long but feature several 'loops' that have exit points back to the parking. We'll shoot for a 3-mile hike depending on the weather and attendance. But you're free to shorten if you prefer. The trails are rugged but fairly level. Appropriate shoes and plenty of water are a must. It'll be warm enough to hang around after and splash around in the lake if you'd like. We'll most likely have lunch at the Marina afterward for those who would like to join! You can check out the menu HERE (http://www.bajabbqshack.com/). As with all Nature Hound events, only leashes 6ft or less allowed. Absolutely NO flexi-leads. Links: • See pics from our last visit.
