Santa Clarita Sister Cities Charity Hike – POSTPONED

The Santa Clarita Sister Cities Charity Hike has been postponed. A new date will be announced as soon as the event is rescheduled. Those who have already registered for the hike should check their email inbox for a message regarding the postponement and instructions for requesting refunds.




Be part of the Santa Clarita Sister Cities Charity Hike in the beautiful Santa Clarita Woodlands. This is an event you will not want to miss!

This inaugural hike will provide an enjoyable experience for everyone.  Choose between the challenging 5.1-mile Towsley Canyon Loop Trail with its panoramic views of the Santa Clarita Valley or the scenic rolling hills of the shorter 1.6-mile Elder Loop along the stunning trails at Rivendale Park and Open Space in Santa Clarita, California.

Make a difference! Have a great experience while supporting a worthwhile cause.
Funds raised will benefit the Santa Clarita Sister Cities’ Local-to-Global programs that support the Sister Cities International’s mission “to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time.”  Help us:

  • Expand youth, educational and cultural international exchanges
  • Promote global engagement through global collaborative projects such as the installation of libraries in schools in Nicaragua, providing school desks for children in Sariaya, Philippines, providing medical cabinets in schools in Tena, Ecuador
  • Foster international awareness through the Sister Cities Young Artists/Authors Showcase
