For our June hike, we will climb French Hill and then hike a loop trail around Turtle Rock in Irvine.
Date: Saturday, June 10, 2023
Time: Meet at 7:50, gather, pray, hike at 8:00
This is a loop hike that starts off with a big hill. On top, we will have beautiful views of Irvine and surrounding areas including the ocean. The loop trail is mostly dirt, with some asphalt portions. Just over 4 miles with 800 feet of elevation from three different hills.
