About

Join the Hiking Ministry family from the Rock Church in Point Loma as we hike the Sunset Trail/Big Laguna Trail in the Laguna Mountain Recreation Area. We will meet at the Meadows Information Kiosk and Picnic Area, Sunrise Hwy., Mile 19.

We'll start on the Sunset Trail and hike to the Big Laguna Trail, where we will walk along the meadow and stop for a short devo. You will have the opportunity to meet new friends to do life with, grow with, explore with and love Jesus with!
