Six Peaks: What to Bring and Where to Hike!

Long Beach

Saturday, February 9
1:00 pm
Signal Hill

Join All Saints Anglican Cathedral, Long Beach and others in the shared ministry of missions in the Diocese of Western Anglicans on Saturday, February 9, for a prayer walk up Signal Hill! The walk is about one and a half miles, winding up through the neighborhoods of Signal Hill as we pray at six stops along the way, to follow the Diocese’s “Six Peak Challenge” in praying for our missionaries as well as for the City of Long Beach. Click here for a prayer guide to aid in the walk.

You are encouraged to ask people to sponsor you, using these suggested guidelines: minimum donation $50, whole family donation $100 or $20 per “peak,” each of our six stops. This is an intentional walk, stopping at six different stops in order to pray for our six initiatives (specifics will be given to prayer walkers on February 9). This is a means by which we can all join together to pray for our missionaries.

Park and meet in the Home Depot parking lot, near the entrance closest to Cherry Avenue and Skyline Drive. One bottle of water for each person is provided – please bring more for yourself if needed.

Please email Laurel Howat by Wednesday, February 6th, at Ldhowat@aol.com if you are interested, or any time before the 6th with any questions

9 AM
Mt. Rubidoux

Join walkers from St. Stephen’s in Tustin, Christ’s Church in Yukaipa, and St. James in Newport Beach and others. Meet in Parking Lot of Mt. Rubidoux Historical Park: This is a 2 mile hike on a very well maintained gentle ascent trail. There is a road to the top so we will probably have a vehicle at the top to return those who do not have time/desire for the walk up with a return walk by the same route.

Go here for views and a map of the area.

  • Please make sure you also bring with you your signed and dated disclaimer form.

Level of Hike: Easy with moderate uphill climb. It is an hour hike plus three stops of a half an hour each. If we start by 7:30, we should be done sometime between 10 and 11 a.m. We will spend approximately a half an hour each at Dante’s View, Mt. Hollywood, and Captain’s Roost mostly in prayer. If we have more than 8 people we will divide into two or more groups. Two prayer initiatives will be addressed at each stop. At Dante’s view we will also pray for St. Luke’s and the outreach of our church. At the Mt. Hollywood and Captain’s root stops we will also spend time praying for the Los Angeles area.
