Let's hike from Shell Beach to Pomo Canyon campground via Red Hill (7 miles) or alternate route (6 miles). Starting at the ocean, we will walk over hillsides, along sunny open trails and through deep redwood forests. Our route takes about 4 hours, including a lunch stop. This moderate hike has an elevation gain of 700 feet each way, for a total of 1400 feet.
As usual, please bring lunch, plenty of water and your camera. The July hike is not sponsored by CA parks or by Valley of the Moon Natural History Association, although led by the infamous team of Laura and Bob.
