Now that the daylight hours are longer, let's start the weekend with a Friday Night hike. It will be a fun time of fellowship while enjoying the beauty of God's creation at sunset! We will hike both the Grasslands Loop and the Oak Canyon Trail. Meet at 5:30 p.m. and the adventure begins at 5:45 p.m., so please arrive on time. Hope to see you all there!

Park in the dirt lot at the corner of Bushy Hill Dr. and Father Junipero Serra Trail as this is outside the gate. Gates are locked at 7 p.m. Don't get locked in as you will not be able to get out and you will get a ticket.

Please self-evaluate your hiking level before going on this hike. This hike is rated moderate.

If there is interest, we can go out to eat afterwards.

For we walk by faith, not by sight - 2 Corinthians 5:7
