Let's visit Boat Canyon again and join the Yoga Group for Easy Hike and Yoga Outdoor

This can be a workout conditioning hike or a "relax" easy pace and optional great yoga practice outdoor. The ocean views from the cliff at the end of Boat Canyon are like Hawaii, absolutely stunning!--- Boat Canyon above Laguna Beach (Sunset 7:53 PM Moonrise 9:47 PM)

Since this is a residential area, we'll limit number of participants, only RSVP if you are sure attending, "NO" RSVP is not required. Thanks!

DEPARTURE TIME: 6:05PM (easy pace-yoga or quick pace conditioning workout)

Duration/Distance: 1 to 3 hours, 2 to 8.5 miles, elevation[masked]ft. Please indicate when sign up if you will join Yoga Practice! Since we have other organizers join us, we will have different group paces for more hiking. Please join Jerry and David McCoy for a long workout 8.5 miles fast pace (level 2+/3) or at least 5.5-6 miles moderate pace (level 1+/2)

General Rating/Difficulty: Levels 1 to 3: easy to strenuous. CLICK RATING TABLE to read more about difficulty levels

ROUTE: We will meet at Gate 14 of Laguna Coast Wilderness. Boat Canyon is a ridge above Laguna Beach, after a mile uphill, we will stop to practice yoga (basic) at optional or enjoy a snack and the view if you like a really short hike with hill, and then head back.

The workout versions: can be 2 miles to 6 miles depending on your time. Please indicate when sign up.

ESSENTIALS: Wear good traction shoes or comfortable shoes if you go easy pace for Yoga. Bring water, hat and a yoga mat (if stay back for Yoga) There is no shade on this hike, but a great view of the ocean all the way to Catalina, San Clemente and snowing top mountains!

DIRECTIONS: We meet at Gate 14 http://www.ocparks.co...
Yahoo Map or Google to Dunnegan Dr and Dartmoor St, Laguna Beach. Please map your direction before hand and don't rely on your GPS alone as the trailhead is a bit tricky to find. Dartmoor St and Hillcrest Dr signs are under the tree branches, so it's tough for first time driving here. From Pacific Coast Hwy going south (pass Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar, Crystal Cove before reach to Laguna Beach), turn left on San Joaquin St (Viejo is the next light street), right on HILLCREST DR, Turn Left on DARTMOOR ST drive to the end.
From PCH going North pass Laguna Beach turn right on San Joaquin St (right after you pass Viejo, the street with light), right on HILLCREST DR, Turn Left on DARTMOOR ST drive to the end

    Since we will have a big group, please be kind to the neighborhood by walking past the gate after you park your car on the street. The view is there for you to take photos and relax chatting while waiting for the group.
    If you haven't been to this trailhead, please allow extra time and follow driving direction on the post besides using the GPS for the address alone. It will help avoiding to get lost or unable to locate the group. See you all tomorrow!

    Hi! I will not be joining Yoga practice.

    May 21, 2013

  • Lily

    Do we have level 2+/3 hikers? It means the big loop that the group is usually hiking on full moon? We have few organizers/regular hikers of this trail who may like to take a group with you: Jerry/Gerry/David McCoy or you all just like a relax time watching us doing yoga? Dave, will you help level 2? meaning taking a group that is not doing yoga, but not doing the whole full lollipop loop (about 5.5 miles with slower pace then the other group).

    Please let me know. Thanks gentlemen! See you all on Sunday :-)

    May 21, 2013

    • Jerry B.

      I will do the full loop Lily, if anyone is interested. if not I will just watch you doing Yoga.

    I will do whatever is needed. I do prefer to do the whole loop though, pace doesn't matter we can go as slow as we need to.

      Sina, no, as indicated on the post, we will have basic yoga practice that will fit for new or beginners level. For the experience ones, they will join to be in nature as we won't have a competition or a goal to be at certain level in yoga practice to join this event :-)
