December 27, 2017 (Jacumba Hot Springs) – Hi ho! The Jacumba Hikers and Walkers are hitting the trail to Carrizo Gorge and Walker Canyon on December 30th.   This six mile hike is rated hard due to a steep down and up trek across the gorge, where hikers will see an up-top view of the “Impossible Railroad” at De Anza Resort, then head north on an old road to an abandoned railroad settlement in historic Walker Canyon.

Meet at 8 a.m. at the Jacumba Spa, 44500 Old Highway 80 in Jacumba Hot Springs 91934 to carpool to the start point. Breakfast is available starting at 7:30 a.m. 

Bring plenty of water, snacks and lunch.  A walking stick is advised.  Please, no dogs on this rugged hike. Be sure to read these hiking safety tips.
