The 9.4-mile scenic walking route will start at the entrance to Rancho Los Cerritos and then connect to Willow Springs Park, Hilltop Park, Reservoir Hill, and the CSULB campus and finish with a celebration at Rancho Los Alamitos. Walkers also have the option to register for abbreviated 3.5 and 6-mile routes, starting from Reservoir Hill and Willow Springs Park respectively. Register for your preferred route today!
