Garland Park-- Snively's Ridge via Garzas Canyon ( ~ 7.5 miles, ~1700 ft)

Announcing a new Meetup for The Monterey Bay Area Hiking Group!

What: Garland Park-- Snively's Ridge via Garzas Canyon ( ~ 7.5 miles, ~1700 ft)

When: Saturday, October 2,[masked]:45 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Earlier in the year we hiked Snively's Ridge down to Garzas Canyon as we traversed our way along the ridges of Garland park. This time we'll take a shorter section and hike up Garzas Canyon to Snively's Ridge then down to Holt Rd.

What to Expect
This is the steep "road" to Snively's Ridge. Appx two miles of trail will be 10%-20% grade and appx a mile of the trail up to the ridgeline is very steep and erosional in feature. It's sweaty and fun, just what I like :-)

What to Bring
Water (2-3 liters)
Lunch
Snacks
Hat
Layers
Sunscreen

Where to meet/ Directions:
This is a point to point hike. We will meet at trail's end at Holt Rd. then shuttle to the Garzas Canyon trailhead to begin our hike. At the end of the hike we'll drive back to retrieve vehicles.

Holt Rd. is located off Robinson Canyon Rd. in Carmel Valley. The road ends approximately half a mile up the hill at a gated community. Park a little ways below the gate on the right or left shoulder. We will meet at 9:45am and carpool to the start at 10:15am.

Please join me and share with me one of my favorite places in Monterey County. We'll do a little hiking, do a little sweating, enjoy the sun and sea views, and at the end let's toast tableside with a round of margaritas :-).
