Harmon Canyon Trail

On Saturday at 8 am, we have the opportunity to run (hike, walk) the Harmon Canyon trail. It’s the trail that goes next to Missionary church and the Clearpoint homes. Hopefully soon the trail will be open to the public. The girls distance team will be there.  (Boys – check with your coach.)  As well as some runners from VHS and FTHS. Parents and family (dogs on leashes too) can join us. Everyone that is going to be there needs to sign and bring the attached waiver – see attachment below (The trail is still private property)
