Hike: Fall Creek

Hike past thick redwoods along the rushing waters of Fall Creek State Park, in Felton, CA. This cool, shady hike for a hot summer day, is listed on the Ventana website as about 6 miles long with 800 feet of elevation gain. I would like to lengthen it to 7 miles long, with 1200 feet of elevation gain, if that is OK with everyone going on the hike. We will see the Lime Kilns and Barrel Mill in this hidden gem. The longer version includes taking the Truck trail. Meet at the Santa Cruz Government Center at 9 am to carpool, or at 9:30 at the Felton-Empire Road park entrance. Return by 2 pm. Call for more information. Leaders: Allan Neymark, 457,2505 and Maggie Dickson. For more hikes see http://ventana.sierraclub.org/schedule .

    I am so sorry I missed you all.I knew it would be awesome.Having lived in the valley for 12 years[masked], this is a very pristine spot.
    Maybe next time now that I am back in the area from SAn Diego.

    Really enjoyed hiking with all of you! Many of us saw some trails for the first time. Hope those of you, for which something came up, can come next time. My next hike is "Big Basin to the Sea, by bus" on September 14.

      Hi Kitty (again), Chuck and I were planning on taking this hike but our kids who just got back from Germany spent the night with us and wanted to show us their photos this morning, so we had to forgo the hike. I'd love to do it with you on another day, now that you are the expert (I'm assuming :). love, L.

    I think the trek is a little too difficult for now. I'm "training" for Butano Hike on the 29th! Thanks and have fun:) Carol the Novice

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
