SAN MARCOS — The city of San Marcos Community Services will sponsor a Discover San Marcos Hike to Sunset Park at 9 a.m. on Feb. 6. Hikers can preview the 19-acre Sunset Park and explore the trails in the west portion of the city. Sunset Park is the city’s newest park, and will be open to the public in late February 2010. The park is located near the corner of Poinsettia and La Mirada Drive and has rolling hills with views of the Pacific Ocean.
Hikers will meet at Bradley Park, at 1587 Linda Vista Drive in San Marcos. The hike is free, and is mostly flat with a few small hills. The four-mile route will be on city streets and urban trails.
An adult must accompany all minors. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended, and hikers are asked to bring water and trail snacks. Dogs must be on a maximum 6-foot leash at all times. For information on hikes or the city’s trails, visit www.san-marcos.net or call (760) 744-9000, ext. 3508 or 3535.
