I am proposing a 4 day 3 night trip down to Henry Coe / Morgan Hill for a weekend of flowers and spring. This trip is not for the out of shape. Coe is a very rugged place and we will be doing a 27 mile weekend. Please see the park links for more info.
While our winter locally has been mild, I am itching to get out and Coe has been a favorite due to the abundance of flowers. That being said, California has had a dry year as well, and the rangers have indicated only 5 inches have fallen this past quarter. Flowers and water sources may be iffy. Still, if we don't go, we wont know, right?
If you can pack light and have the stamina for this trip, please join me! My plan is to drive down Thursday morning and hike into our first night location. We will move campsites Friday. We will day hike a loop Saturday, possibly returning to the Thursday night location (or not). And Sunday we will beat it back to the car for a long tired ride home.
I have room for 3 others in my car, and if there are more folks it would be advisable to caravan / consolidate rides as parking at Coe is limited.
