VIDEO: Helix Flume Trail Virtual Hike

There’s a new trail in town! The Helix Flume Trail is a short .8 miles (one way) along the County’s background in Lakeside and is now open to the public.

The hike itself has plenty of great views, but there are also lots of cool history lessons along the way – it starts at the historic El Monte Pump Station and heads up to the original water flume.

Take this virtual hike before going trekking out there yourself and be sure to share with a fellow hiker!
