WILDERNESS DISCOVERY HIKES
Discovery Hikes are guided exploration beyond the normal confines of the trail but are less instructional than the other backcountry hikes. Join Park Interpreter Ali Barnes and Wilderness Patrol staff on a moderately strenuous backcountry hike in the San Jacinto Wilderness. There will be some deviation from the trail to “discover” locations not typically seen by the average day hiker, so anticipate hiking approximately 4-6 miles roundtrip.
