Hidden Trails of Rancho Santa Fe (new hike): Today's hike, all on trail, is 9 miles (can be extended to 11.5 miles by adding a loop around RSF reservoir). Many are unaware that there are nearly 60 miles of horse trails winding through the hills of RSF. Fortunately for us, Mike McDonald, a new Walkabout Wilderness member and RSF resident, has run and hiked these trails for 40 years and will be our guide. We will hike some of the lesser known trails in the "Ranch", most of which are hidden from roads. The trails all have good surfaces, so almost any type of hiking or tennis/running shoe will work. There will be several short steep areas, however, so some may want to bring poles. Pack snack, lunch and water. (No water or toilet facilities are available at our meeting point, though water will be available 6 miles into the hike). The forecast for RSF on Wednesday is mostly sunny with a high of 74 Hike starts at 8:00 AM
Directions to Meeting Point: We will meet at 8:00AM in the parking lot of Rancho Santa Fe Elementary School, 5927 La Granada, RSF 92067. Enter the address into Google Maps or Mapquest to obtain the best/fastest route from your location to the meeting point.
