Midweek Mission Trails Hike
Wednesday, June 12
Grasslands Loop and Oak Canyon Trail

Join the Hiking Ministry family from the Rock Church as we do a midweek hike at Mission Trails Regional Park. It will be a fun time of fellowship while enjoying the beauty of God's creation! We will hike both the Grasslands Loop and the Oak Canyon Trails. This is an ideal hike for novice hikers, kids and dogs (on leash).

NOTE: Park in the dirt lot at the corner of Father Junipero Serra Trail and Bushy Hill Dr. or on the street outside the first gate as this gate is locked at 7 p.m.

I'm rating this hike as easy-to-moderate. There is one medium hill to climb. Please self-evaluate your fitness and hiking levels before attempting this hike.

"Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you." - Genesis 13:17 NKJV
