The Valley Center Trails Association is excited to announce its ’21 – ’22 hiking season. The first event will be an evening stroll and get-together on Wednesday, September 22 at 5:30pm. We’ll meet at 15155 Vesper Rd. – the trailhead for the Sunshine Trail. This short trail meanders between Vesper and Valley Center Rd., next to the solar farm. The path is wide and flat, so the kids can bring their bikes. There will be a Valley Center Trails Association membership table where you can stop for information and a snack, but you don’t have to be a member or become a member to participate.

Come celebrate the first day of fall, the return of cooler weather, and the beginning of hiking season! The full hiking schedule is below.
