Hot Topic

The hot season is the best season. Why? Because the weak hide indoors, leaving one of the nation’s largest cities a nearly empty territory to enjoy and discover. This rule of thumb also applies to the active, where all of the wimps stow away into air-conditioned gyms.

The trails should be ripe for solitary-ish adventure during the Full Moon Hiking at Usery when a ranger will lead hikers through an interpretive 2.5-mile trek.
