Description: For our October hike we will explore various trails at Peters Canyon Regional Park.
Meet: By the kiosk in the parking lot. Bring $5 for parking - either cash, credit/debit or annual regional park pass.
Easy/short hike: We will start by hiking around the lake. About 2 miles. All dirt trails. Mostly flat with a couple of smaller hills. You can return to the parking lot after this loop if you choose to.
Longer hike: We will continue through the park southwards. Three options:
Easy - meander down the main trail;
Intermediate - take the ridge trail. Some hills, beautiful views;
Advanced: Same as intermediate except start off with the big hill, then join the intermediate hikers for the ridge trail.
