Hike: Butano State Park/Candelabra Trail

This is a five mile 1000' elevation gain hike in Butano State Park. The trailhead is on Gazos Creek Road. We'll hike the gradually uphill Candelabra Trail (blazed in 2006) and pay a visit to the Old Candelabra Tree. We'll continue on to the Gazos Trail and then on to the Olmo Fire Road. Nice views and a mixed forest of redwood, madrone, fir, and pine. Bring water and lunch. Meet before 9:30am at Sears 41st Avenue. Leader: Tom Davey, 331-8430.

    It was my first organized hike ever! The "team" led by Tom was so welcoming and encouraging. Think next time I will stick with maybe 500 feet ascent. Praise and cheers!!Each of you added a richness to my life with your shared stories and adventures and dreams. I am so grateful today AND a "little" sore in the bum. xo
