Kincaid Park - Lamia Bouziane Memorial Hike

Let's take a scenic, easy-paced fall hike on the ridge and bluff trails of Kincaid Park. This event is a memorial to our departed friend Lamia Bouziane, who last hiked these trails with us on September 25, 2011 (see photo gallery).

The route depends on weather. I plan two segments so you can return after Part 1 if you want a shorter hike. Part 2 might include a hike on the beach. Plan to be out 2-4 hours, depending on whether or not you hike both segments.

These are foot trails with a few really steep sections, and total elevation gain about 500 feet. The bluff can be windy so be prepared! Bring suitable weather gear, cameras, water, snacks, etc.

Well-behaved dogs are OK. Bring poop bags, and leash for wildlife encounters.

    The view from the top of the bluff was beautiful!

    Beautiful sunny day with many stops to admire the scenery. Found plenty of rose hips and a few tasty salmon berries on the 300-foot climb up the bluff. Three of us continued southeast on the inland ridges and down to the beach, where we found a bearded artist piling up rock sculptures. Lamia would have enjoyed this day.

    Scouted the route this afternoon and found excellent trail conditions. Trails are snow-free with just a few scattered muddy spots. Great views of the new snow on the mountains. See you all tomorrow!

      Not much snow here on the west side, and temps Sunday are forecast on the 40s. I think we'll be OK. ;)

    I'm sorry but I had to change my Ramp hike to Sunday due to snow and so now I can't come to this.

    What a wonderful idea. Sorry, can't join, will spend weekend with Alaska Huts fixing up the Manitoba cabin. Hoping for good weather. Have fun!

    Yes indeed, leashed wildlife has been known to poop all over, so be prepared!.
