It is recommended that you bring drinking water and sun protection, such as sunblock and/or a hat.
The monthly walks/hikes are to encourage folks to utilize the vast San Juan Capistrano trail system. There are more than 40 miles of walkable hiking trails in the city's open space areas. A map to the city's trail system is available on the City's website at www.sanjuancapistrano.org
