If you like the outdoors and you want some fresh air then Clint wants to "take a hike" with you!
The plan is to meet once a month and choose a different trail to get to know some of the great hiking spots in San Diego County. Clint doesn't want to do it alone so why not keep him company while you get some "you time".

IMPORTANT: CLICK HERE for the hike waiver. You must print it, fill it out and give it to Clint on the day of the hike in order to participate.
It's time for the monthly hike!
This time we'll meet at Old Mission Dam. I've posted the directions below. Meet time will be 8am on Saturday, September 17th, (This Saturday), and we'll take an easy stroll on the trails. There's a cool little bridge there with a walking trail through some of the area. Bring a camera because you can see coyotes, deer, possibly a mountain lion, although that is rare, and much more.
I'll be in the parking lot where the dam is located and hope to see you there…bring plenty of water, sun screen and definitely close toed shoes for safety.
If you have any questions you can call or email me:
