Announcing a new Meetup for San Francisco Bay Area Outings!

What: Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park - San Lorenzo River

When: Saturday, August 21,[masked]:30 AM

Where: California Avenue Caltrain Station
101 S. California Avenue
Palo Alto, CA 94306

Hello All,

We had an outstanding hike at Huddart County Park last Saturday with a wonderful group and a nearly record-breaking turnout (45!) ! The Huddart Park Loop has become an instant favorite with many of the hikers-- including me. If any of the participants have pics, it would be great if you could post them.

Our next hike will be at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park near Felton and will be moderately strenuous with a total distance of about 8 miles and 1500 feet of elevation gain. The hike will end at about 5 PM (back at trail head).

This hike is one of my favorites and is the only hike I have led every year since I first hiked it. We will be hiking among the redwoods and descending into the San Lorenzo River Valley, where we will have a nice adventure and ford the river. The water will likely be about knee high. In past years, our hikers have thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. For those who are so inclined, we will then spend some time swimming in a swimming hole.

Afterward, we will have an optional dinner at the Boulder Creek Brewing Company.

I will post further details later this week.

I hope you can join us....

Your Organizer,
Julio M.
