CANCELLED due to Trail Conditions: Second Sunday in Weir Canyon: Oaks and Vistas Cardio Hike

Hiking & Fitness

Explore beautiful Weir Canyon and surrounding wilderness areas on this fast-paced cardio hike. Along the trail, you’ll pass through grasslands, oak woodlands ,and coastal sage habitat recovering from the 2017 Canyon 2 fire . Multiple steep climbs and descents are included. Enjoy views of Saddleback Peak and the Cleveland National Forest along the way.

Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-4 activity on the land.

There is minimal to no shade on the route. You must carry your own adequate supply of water. Come prepared with a day pack, closed-toe hiking shoes or boots, sunscreen, snacks and any other supplies to keep you safe and healthy on the trail.

Remember, this cardio hike is much faster than a walk, and features a 2,000-foot elevation change. You must be able to hike uphill at an average pace of 3.5-to-4 mph without stopping.  Please make sure you are in excellent physical condition!
