Grab your hiking poles and join Steve, Friends volunteer docent, for the Mission Creek Preserve trail. This trail is in the Sand to Snow National Monument created in 2015. We will trek along a riparian area and anticipate seeing an area lush with spring wildflowers. Along the way you may see wonderful views of San Jacinto Mountain and San Gorgonio Mountain. You will learn early 20th century history of ranching and tourism in the area.
This 3.5-mile hike is rated easy with an elevation gain of 125 feet. Bring your camera, wildflower books, picnic lunch, 2 liters of water per person. Wear closed toed hiking boots, hat and sunscreen.
