This was a great day with great people. Thank you all for your company and a special thank you to Veronica and Mike for leading. I am sorry I left the second we got back to the parking lot at 112. I had a 200 appointment at 38th and Brommer and thought I'd need all those minutes to get there on a beautiful Sunday and I was right! :-)

Great mix of terrain and people on a gorgeous day
It's hike day! Yippee!! Let's go!! :-
They changed my day to see my granddaughter to today insteadcof yesterday, so i picked her up at 7:4( .m. missed out on hiking
I am sorry to miss this wonderful hike. I took it a number of years ago. I'll be sailing the Bay/Ocean but don't expect to get that far South in a day. Have fun!

During the sunny part of the hike there are a few gnats flying by, but they are nothing more than a little annoying. Hiking poles if you have them might be helpful.

Confirming start time & location. From Hiway 1 in Santa Cruz, turn on Hiway 9 & drive 5 miles to Felton. Turn left (west) on Felton Empire Road and proceed .5 (1/2) mile to the small Fall Creek parking area. I drove past it the first time, as it comes up pretty quick on the right. Friday I did not see anywhere to pay for parking. I parked in this lot all day & did not receive a ticket for forgetting to display my SPP. I did not see any way to pay for the day. It might be safe to say parking should not be a problem. We will leave the trailhead at 9 AM. It will take you conservatively 30 to 45 min to get to the parking area from Aptos so plan accordingly. We don't want you to miss this beautiful hike. Most of the climb is during the first five miles. We will stop for lunch at trails end. Will hike through about a mile of sun, otherwise it is a pleasant shade/sun dappled hike.
I would like to join your group and attend this hike!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
