Montara Mountain Hike

Directions/meeting point:(the meetup.com directions linked above are not always reliable, use these details to find the start of the hike) We'll meet at the McNee Ranch Trailhead on Highway 1 about five miles south of Pacifica (if parking there is full there is some more about 1/2 a mile South Hwy 1, on the right hand side of the road).  I will be driving my Silver Subaru Impreza WRX, license plate ending in 468.   I'll be wearing this black Sanzaru Games hoodie (if it's not too hot). I'll send out my cell to RSVPs (but as always there is no guarantee of reception).

We will be heading up to the summit of Montara Mountain which is part of Montara Beach State Park.  We will take the path from the trailhead to Pedro Mountain Road which goes all the way to the summit (then return the same way we came).  This is a fairly strenuous hike, its about 4 miles to the summit with about 1800 feet of elevation gain.

This is a dog-friendly park (though on-leash only I believe), and well behaved dogs are welcome. Hopefully the weather will be good, but be prepared for rain or mud.  Carpooling is recommended as there is limited parking at the trailhead.  I will be driving from the NOPA district of SF, email via meetup if you need a lift.

Seeing as its close by, I'll be heading to the nearby restaurant La Costanera on Montara Beach after the hike if anyone is interested in a beer (or a glass of Sangria) and a snack.

    I'm multi-tasking by doing some birding with the Bay Area Birding group on Ocean Beach at 11A.M. Therefore, I will NOT arrive on at the trailhead on time. I'll meet you somewhere on the trail or, if not, then I will me you at La Costanera afterward.
