Hiking is one of the best ways to get in shape and improve your cardio health. With hiking you can do it while enjoying nature. Sometimes you might even have the fortune of having a group of people to go with and get some great conversation in. Mission Trails Regional Park offers local hiking with easy to difficult options.
The main trail is paved and works well for those with a bike, strollers, and beginning hikers. There are other trails that spider off of the main road that require more effort. There are 5 peaks with trails that lead to each one of them. By the time you finish them all you will have experienced different challenges.
The thing I like about these trails is that there is a river that runs through it as well as a historical dam. Lots of trails have nothing special but this one seems to have a lot of unique things. It is a fun trail to take family members and go for a walk, run, or climb challenging hillsides. So it is versatile. It might be one of the reasons why it is so popular.
