Mission Heritage Trail Association provides a forum for discussion of ideas about safety, access, and preservation.
MHTA is devoted to the maintenance of Mission Canyon's beauty, the protection of historic and archaeologic resources, the sustaining of flora, fauna and water, and solving long-standing access and safety problems.
