Trail Master Bio: Jon Cebula, CPT
“My interest in hiking started at a young age in Cub Scouts. I have always enjoyed being outdoors and especially wandering around. The peace of mind found when walking through nature is well worth the efforts. My “Favorite” hiking trail would have to be the Paradise Falls Trail at Wildwood Park in Thousand Oaks, California.” See more information about Jon Cebula.
