Hey Hiking Pacers,
We are so excited to start another season of hiking! We will meet new people and continue spending time with our regular hikers. Many new places to explore and admire some of what nature has to offer. For our first hike of the new season, we are heading to Monrovia Canyon Falls! An easy beginner hike that is good for the family. Please bring your friends and family who have always wanted to try hiking. Start to train weekly to slowly build the stamina for our upcoming longer hikes.
