Description: Hosteling Weekend with Multiple Hikes, Museums, Potluck meals Friday Sept. 20 through Sunday Sept 22 We've decided that rather than organizing specific food items for individuals to bring for the dinners, everyone should just bring everything and we'll share galore. Remember Saturday is spaghetti and Sunday is tacos. Breakfast and lunch are up to each individual. Pescadero State Beach is on the way, and I thought those of you who are interested might want to join us Friday morning for a quick 2.5 mile leg stretch before we get to the hostel. Pescadero State Beach hike Oh! Bring towels. They provide bedding, but not towels Rain or Shine! Three easy hikes, and one beautiful hot tub. The hostel is located on the coast between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz. Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel Information. Host Donation per person includes both Saturday and Sunday nights at the hostel, paid in advance. Co-ed bunk style. The house has a fully stocked kitchen/dining area, barbecue, big screen TV, and 2 full bathrooms to share among 14.

Plan on having you lunch and backpack ready Friday while we travel to the campgrounds. We will be taking one short hikes along the way.
We are full with a short waiting list, so if you can't make it and would like to sell your spot contact the first person on the waiting list and have them pay me for the spot at the current price via Amazon Payments....then email me. I will then adjust the event listings. and return to you your funds. The hostel folks have the right to fill the beds with their own guests and we will get charged the same if the names change.
