Beautiful Rancho San Vincente Hike

I rode my recumbent to Rancho San Vincente to meet my hiking group and we went for the classic loop “Lisa’s Lookout via Lisa Killough Trail”. It was a gorgeous spring day with lots of green grass and wildflowers blooming. The total workout, riding plus hiking, was a little over 4 hours at an easy pace. A great day.
