Did you know there are two Los Pinos Peaks in California and they are less than 2 hrs apart. So I thought, why not try and do both in one weekend. Its up to you whether you want to do one or both there is no requirement or pressure to do both. This is just something for fun! Both of these will be an off-leash hike for the dog(s). If you dont have a dog, wed still like you to join us!
