Path of the Padres hikes coming up

The season for hiking the Path of the Padres draws near, and parks officials are taking reservations. Becky Heilman, a parks employee who once led the walkabouts, said people of all shapes, sizes and interests enjoy the trek along the path through the Diablo Range taken by padres as they came from Mission San Juan Bautista 35 miles along Los Banos Creek and into the Central Valley in the early 1800s.
