Do you have what it takes to participate in our Warrior Hike Challenge? Join us Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 27, beginning at 7 a.m. at El Capitan County Preserve, where you can pick your distance: Boot Camp (2 miles), Recon (6 miles) and Warrior (11+ miles) levels.

Have fun and get a great workout while hiking alongside and paying tribute to our local active duty and retired military personnel!

Hikers should bring ample water (1+ gallons for Warriors), and wear sturdy hiking boots. Sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and a walking stick or poles are also recommended.

Healthy refreshments are available at celebration stations, including the staging area at the base of the preserve, located of Wildcat Canyon Road at 13775 Blue Sky Ranch Road in Lakeside. Park staff are always on site and along the trail to answer questions and lead groups.
