Since it's spring break for many school districts in the area, I thought I'd organize a kid-friendly hike before school starts up again & the weather gets hotter. The trail is rather wide and well-maintained - I've seen people push around their kiddos in those heavy-duty strollers so if you have one and don't mind pushing your kids around when they get tired, bring it along! The trail is dog-friendly as well so if you have adventure pups, bring them along, too!

What to bring:
• Comfortable shoes (hiking boots or trail runners recommended but not required)
• 2L of water - remember to bring more water if you're bringing kids or dogs
• Credit Card for parking ($3 for 4 hours). I do not believe the machines take cash. If you are a Claremont resident or are a student of the Claremont Colleges, parking is free if you have a permit. (Don't know how to apply for a permit?

For the first ten people that show up, I'll cover your parking costs if you'd like :)
