Hike: Wilder Ranch Big Loop

See much of Wilder Ranch State Park on this 14 mile hike, with 1000 feet of elevation gain. This is a long, but not that strenuous, hike. We go out over the hills east of Highway 1, and return along the bluffs above the ocean. Snack stop at the Eucalyptus Grove, and lunch at 4-mile beach. Bring plenty of water, lunch, and an extra layer in case it gets windy on the way back. Meet at the Santa Cruz Government Center to carpool; we leave at 8 am sharp for Wilder. Or meet at Wilder, in the parking lot near the bathrooms, at 8:20 am. Return 5 pm, maybe earlier. Call for more information. Leaders: Allan Neymark, 457,2505 and Maggie Dickson.

    This would be my first hike with this group... I have hiked typically 6-7 miles at a good clip- 3 mi and hour and i am in good shape- i am looking forward to the hike but I certainly don't want to hold anyone up. Your thoughts?

      We usually go at 2.5 mph - slower - but the hike is twice as long as you are used to. Perhaps try a 10-miler this weekend, and see how you feel. If this hike would be too long for you, we are hosting a shorter hike next month.
