What's a mapping party?
6 miles and 1300 elevation gain. Bring lunch, liquids, boots, and rain gear. Trekking poles are optional. We will be hiking up to the Bear Gulch Reservoir and through the High Peaks. Flashlights and waterproof boots are needed in the cave. There will be alternate routes for those who do not want to go through the cave or peaks. Bring cash for a snack or dinner stop in San Juan Bautista after the hike. Watch this space for optional mapping party details. Two car pool locations: 8:30 AM at Los Gatos Municipal Parking Lot (Highway 9 between University Ave & Santa Cruz Ave, behind Chase bank). Or at 9am at the McDonalds parking lot in the Gilroy Outlets.
