Walking Tall on National Trails Day

Thursday, May 31, 2012

What better way to acknowledge National Trails Day than by grabbing a walking stick and joining a free naturalist-led hike along the San Diego River in Santee this Saturday, June 2.

The hike, which is an easy 3-mile round trip, will start at 9 a.m. at the historic Edgemoor polo barn at 9113 Magnolia Ave and finish around noon.  Children and dogs are welcome to participate. The hike leader will identify local flora and fauna and explain existing and future San Diego River trail connections.

The event is sponsored by the San Diego River Park Foundation and Friends of Santee’s River Park.

National Trails Day was started in 1993 to encourage the development of walking trails. The impetus came from a 1987 report by a presidential commission recommending designated trail access within fifteen minutes walking distance from every American residence.
