Day Hike: Crownridge Canyon Natural Area - Family Love In My City

Day Hike: Crownridge Canyon Natural Area

Thursday, February 01, 2018

Little by little, my love for the outdoors is growing. I didn't grow up hiking or fishing or camping. We'd take yearly trips to Garner State Park where we'd enjoy the Frio River, the put-put and the view, but that was kind of the extent of the outdoors for us!

Continuing the tradition of the outdoors or just mearly starting a outdoor culture in your family is challenging.

Why does it seem like camping gear costs so much? What if I see a snake?

Families work more and we are often over scheduled with sports and clubs and other events. And sometimes, you just don't know where to start!

That is where Latino Outdoors steps in.

Latino Outdoors is an organization that provides the opportunities for many to experience the outdoors with a group and with knowledgeable volunteers and leaders. It is non inclusive but there is definitely an emphasis to educate that Latinos are a part of the history and to increase diversity in the outdoors. The Southwest Region Program Coordinator in San Antonio is Josie Gutierrez, who also blogs at fitfunand. She is a San Antonio native and has a passion for getting us city kids outdoors!

The first Latino Outdoor hike of 2018 was at Crownridge Canyon Natural Area near the La Cantera area of town. There are two hikes, one paved and the other unpaved and a level blank according to the trail map.
