    I will be able to make this hike. Could you give me some idea of the route/destination? I always like to know where I'm going.

      Greg, this will be only my second time at this location, so I am not entirely sure what our trails and destination will be... Besides, I love explorations and side trips... but this is what we did last time:

      Walk from Tennessee Valley to the ocean, then hike to the Coastal Trail, hit Pirate Cove, and finally loop back on Miwok Trail. But expect deviations and "free upgrades" from me... every time!

    Hi Larry,
    I only learned of this hike through your payment e-mail. I've registered for all the e-mail notifications but is there something I've missed? I'm supposed to assist on a NBCH hike this Saturday, but if the turnout is small I may be able to attend the Tenn Val hike instead.
