A Thanksgiving Day hike to Hunter’s Peak for some geocache maintenance. Â The new Sun Valley Regional Park picnic area and trailhead is very nicely done. This track mostly follows the many trails and roads in the area, but has a couple of cross-country segments. There are many ways to the top of the peak.
