CANCELLED due to Fire Weather: Epic Distance Hike in Limestone Canyon

Hiking & Fitness

Join us on this epic hike through the scenic canyons and along the ridges of Limestone Canyon Nature Preserve. This distance hike involves multiple steep climbs and descents on a variety of trails, both double and single track. Though very challenging, the rewards are well worth the effort – a visit to Dripping Springs, both sides of The Sinks, and Box Springs; possible wildlife sightings and sweeping views of Orange County and the Santa Ana Mountains.

Please come prepared with a sturdy day pack, water, snacks, closed-toe hiking shoes or boots, sunscreen, first aid, and all other supplies to keep you safe and healthy on the trail.

All participants must carry their own day pack and water and be comfortable hiking an average moving pace of 3 miles per hour.  Please make sure you bring a minimum of 100 oz. (3 quarts) of water and trail snacks. Under-prepared participants may be denied access to this program.

Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-5 activity on the land.
