Flint, the area totals 8.6 square miles (listen up nature lovers), over 99 percent of which is protected land. Check out the local sights while horseback riding with the non-profit Flintridge Riding Club, relax in the 160-acre Descanso Gardens, and take in the picnic-friendly Music in the Park Summer Concert Series.
