Hike: Fall Creek / Lost Camp

A 9 mile, moderate hike with 1600 feet of elevation gain. The part of the trail past Lost Camp is steep, gaining 1000 feet in two miles. 

Fall Creek is a small, beautiful park hidden about 1/2 mile uphill from Felton, CA.  We will walk through thick redwoods along rushing waters, and see the old Lime Kilns. Lunch stop is at the Big Ben Tree. Bring water, and lunch. The park is mostly shaded, with no bathrooms. Meet at the Santa Cruz Government Center at 9 am to carpool, or at 9:30 at the Felton-Empire Road parking lot. Finished before 3 pm. Leader: Allan Neymark, 831, 457, 2505.

    I walked the hike today. It got warm (80's) and I used insect repellent. I decided to shorten the hike a little, also.
