This is a paved canal trail hike that will take place rain or shine. I prefer the opposite direction than what the Trail Notes describes. We will hike north and go under Ygnacio Valley Rd through a tunnel into Lime Ridge. Great views from here. Bring those cameras. There will be lot's of ducks in the canal and bikers on the Trail. Services at Arbolado and Heather Farms. Park in the street at Arbolado or in the first parking lot on the left. We will meet at the Trail Crossing.Contact: Andrew Kincaid

Go past the library. The 4th stop sign should be Arbolado Drive. Turn left at Arbolado Drive (stop sign). You'll pass the hiking trail just as you approach Arbolado Park. (There is a 3-way stop sign right after the trail crossing.) Park along the street. Meet at trail crossing.
