SANTA  ROSA PLATEAU HIKE
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20
STARTING AT 8:30 AM



Join me on an easy 5 mile hike of the beautiful Santa Rosa Plateau. This will not be a fast paced hike. It is geared toward people new to hiking or those that haven't hiked in a long time. A good place to self evaluate your condition so you can make future decisions picking hikes you will enjoy. 

Please bring plenty of water (two quarts min.), a lunch or snack and don't forget the sunscreen. Dress in layers and wear sturdy hiking shoes. We will meet at the Hidden Valley trail head. 


Directions: From Interstate 15 in Murrieta, exit southwest on Clinton Keith Rd. Drive 5.8 miles to the Hidden Valley Trail head on the left side of the road. The trailhead is located shortly beyond where the road makes a sharp left turn and changes name to Tenaja. 

There is a $4 fee for trail use at the Reserve. For further information please contact Bob Audibert (leader) at bob.takeahike1@gmail.com, or call me at (951) 302-1059 and leave a message and I will get back to you.
