The City of Perris concludes its enormously successful “Take a Hike” series this Saturday, April 29, with a challenging four-mile trek to the summit of Terri Peak at the Lake Perris State Recreation Area.
The Terri Peak hike wraps up the trio of hikes, which included an earlier jaunt along the shoreline of Lake Perris and a moderate trek at Kabian Park in south Perris.
About 400 people took part in the first two hikes and Perris Recreation Coordinator Josh Estrada expects another solid turnout for the upcoming event.
“It’s going to be a great day and the views of Lake Perris and surrounding communities are spectacular from Terri Peak,” Estrada said. “We appreciate the great turnouts at our earlier events in the Take a Hike series and we’re hoping for another outstanding turnout.”
Participants in any of the three hikes have a chance to win several prizes, including bicycles, Fitbit fitness trackers and a GoPro camera.
The Terri Peak hike continues the City’s “Live Well Perris” initiative, which emphasizes healthy eating and exercise. More than 250 people took part in the initial hike at Lake Perris and about 150 turned out at Kabian Park.
Registration for the Terri Peak hike begins at 7:30 a.m. The hike begins about 8 a.m.
Admission to the Lake Perris State Recreation Area and parking are free for all Terri Peak hikers, who can access the State Recreation Park via Lake Perris Drive from Perris and Via Del Lago via Moreno Valley.
