This Saturday we invite our members to join us for a 2-hour
hike to the Kwaay Paay Peak in the Mission Trails Regional Park, a part
of the 5-Peak Challenge.
All levels of experience, age and fitness are welcome. We'll hike in moderation for this 2.5 mile roundtrip to enjoy the outdoors, some good conversations, and a sense of accomplishment when we return.

About AIGA Field Trips
As part of our efforts to get to know our members better and create new connections among each other we attend different events as an AIGA group. Film festivals, exhibitions, lectures, conferences, tours, hikes—we go together. Because together is better. Maybe one day we will even bring in a bus, chaperones, and lunch bags. Let’s explore!
