Hiking ClubHave you always wanted to take advantage of the fabulous hiking trails Orange County has to offer, but don’t know where to start?  Wouldn’t you love to go on a monthly naturalist-led hike, here you’re given all kinds of helpful information about native plants and animals, as well as hiking tips?  Our Mystery Treks Hiking Club is designed to do just that.  Each month we’ll meet at the ENC for a mini seminar on a different hiking topic.  Then we’ll venture out to a fantastic hiking spot in OC and enjoy nature together.

Monthly Topics & Hikes:
