If you love hiking, you have plenty of options available, and there are plenty of places where you can hike this weekend. Take a look at a few of the top hiking trails and consider asking a few friends or family members to check them out with you.
1. El Escorpion Trail
If you are looking for a moderate hike, you should check out El Escorpion Trail. There is a 1.7-mile loop that goes around the Cave of Munits, and the total elevation change is approximately 308 feet. It is a decent challenge that will certainly give you your exercise for the day, and it should take you between 45 minutes and an hour to complete. If you are looking for something a bit more relaxing, spend some time looking at the birds and views. You will definitely want to bring my camera with you to take pictures of what you see.
2. Mary Wiesbrock Loop Trail
If you are looking for a longer hike that isn't quite as strenuous, you should check out the Mary Wiesbrock Loop trail. The entire trail is approximately three and a half miles, but the total elevation change is only 360 ft across the entire loop. It is a relatively easy, straightforward hike that will probably take you about 90 minutes to finish. You will even see people mountain biking and horseback riding on this trail, so don't hesitate to try a few different activities.
