Hopefully this will be easier for folks to find. :) You can pay to park in the parking lot or park for free on the residential streets outside the park, before the entrance. Let's meet on the lawn of the welcome center, which is at the entrance to the parking lot, right past the info booth. Here's the google map (USE THIS AS IT IS ZOOMED INTO THE MEETING LOCATION):
I'm not seeing the trail names online, but basically we'll hike up the southern ridge, with a fantastic view of the ocean for it's second half. We will hike down the same path as it is not a loop trail, however the views are super looking both ways, so it is still a great return as well. This trail is steep on the ascension at points, so it's best if you are comfortable with that at a normal pace. Also, we will cancel if it rains.
**PLEASE NOTE*** We/I have no idea if cells will work here, so please take the time to get directions (both what I wrote above and using "get directions" from google) and milage markers before you leave so that you can meet us at the designated place and time. We'll wait 10 to 15 minutes for everyone and then will begin the hike. Let me know if you have any questions.
Looking forward to seeing and hiking with you all!
