Advanced Cardio Hike: Limestone Canyon

Hiking & Fitness

Join us for a strenuous, extremely challenging, fast-paced, morning cardio hike starting in Limestone Canyon. Along the way we’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of Orange County and possible wildlife sightings.
This is a 13 mile cardio hike, completed in 4 hours and includes a 1700+ foot elevation change. This hike is for experienced, physically fit hikers who enjoy the challenge of multiple steep climbs and descents.

There are no rest stops on this approximately 13 mile cardio hike, and the average 3.5-4 mile per hour fast-pace can be extremely difficult over steep terrain in the wilderness setting.

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

Please bring a minimum of 100 oz. water and trail snacks. Come prepared with a pack, sturdy closed toed hiking shoes or boots, sunscreen, first aid, and all other supplies to keep you safe and healthy on the trail for the extreme fast-paced hike in a wilderness area. Each participant must carry his or her own pack and water. Unprepared participants may be denied access to this program.
