Dinner at the beach, sunset, and a bonfire? You bet!
We'll build our fire in the sand at the beach several yards to the right of the bottom of the trail. In the aerial photo, the bonfire location will be approximately where the brightest yellow dot is.
What to bring:
food to share,
your own plates, utensils, napkins, cups
jacket or sweater
blanket or beach towel
Caution: This is an at-your-own-risk activity. You must read and understand the document titled "Required reading before ACSJ activities," which is available at the "Pages" tab of the ACSJ Meetup site. The 600-foot-long trail to the beach is paved, but very steep, and it's slippery in spots. At the bottom of the trail is a two-foot drop that can be a problem if you have trouble with your knees. The trail is not lighted at night, so bring a flashlight. Cell phone signals can be poor or absent.
Carpooling is informal and voluntary. I love carpooling because it's a great way to get to know people better, and that's what ACSJ and Meetup are about, right?
Greyhound Rock is 17 miles north of Santa Cruz and 1 mile south of Las Trancas Airport. It's easy to miss, so watch for a smallish, square, brown sign that just says "Coastal Access." There's a large, hidden parking lot on the coast side of Hwy 1. Semi-civilized pit toilets are in the parking lot. No drinkable water is available.
Does anybody know the words to "Kumbaya"?
