Polly O’Quinn Stankuviene sent in this photo of her hike on the Jobs Peak Ranch trail today.
It’s a great photo of a great hike, but it brought up a question we’ve been waiting to ask ever since it was submitted on our Valleypedia section last week.
What are your favorite day hikes in the area?  Maps/ directions/ significant ascents, distance and an idea of difficulty would be helpful, along with why it’s a favorite. Feel free to send pictures and answers to or post to our Facebook page at
