Mission Trails Regional Park and a Mini Cooper Clubman are the features in the latest Weekend Driver column, now online and in print in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Never been to Mission Trails? It’s one of the nation’s largest urban parks and sits right in the middle of the southern part of San Diego County, in the east-central City of San Diego and the western edge of Santee.

Confused? How about on the east edge of the Tierrasanta neighborhood? How about around Cowles Mountain?

How could you miss it?

I’m driving a 2017 Mini Cooper Clubman, a fun and actually pretty roomy little car with one of my all-time favorites… the “barn door” hatch in the back.

A Mission Trails Regional Park visit is a makes a great day trip.

Find out more online, or pick up a copy of the paper tomorrow, Friday, Aug. 17, at your newsstand.

By the way, this is column No. 114, marking 17 years with the Union-Tribune and editor Mark Maynard. The first column ran in July 2000. Thanks much to Mark, the newspaper and all of you readers out there for 17 great years!
