This will be a fairly easy hike in Big Morongo, checking out wildflowers and birds. We will take in the trails, boardwalks, and a visit to the adjacent Covington Park.
The hike will be around 3 miles, with a few hundred feet of elevation gain. We will not be going down into the canyon (which is quite steep).
