Upcoming Events:

Pre-Veterans Day Hike @ Skyline Regional Park

Friday, November 9, 2018  | 10 a.m. - Noon

Take a 3-mile round trip hike on Skyline Park’s Mountain Wash Trail and help post an American Flag atop Valley Vista summit to honor all who have served our country over the years starting at 10 a.m. on Nov. 9. Valley Vista summit is the highest point in the park. All U.S. military veterans are welcome to help carry the flag during the ceremonial trek. It’s the perfect way to thank our veterans for serving our country while also enjoying breathtaking views and the great outdoors. 

If you’d like to participate, remember to wear good hiking shoes and bring lots of water and sun protection. The Mountain Wash hiking trail is rated as a difficult trail because of the significant increase in elevation over the 3-miles.  The hike is free and open to anyone who’d like to participate.
