What: Tuesday Evening Hike: Point Joe via Forest Lodge Loop (~6 Miles, ~300 Feet)

Where: Pebble Beach - Pacific Grove Gate

Last chance to hike with the MBAHG before we all chow down for Thanksgiving's savory eats and treats!! No better way to burn a few extra calories than to join us out at Pebble Beach to enjoy a hike along a beautiful stretch of coastline between Spanish Bay and Point Joe. This week's after-work hike will yield 6 miles and about 300 feet of cumulative gain.



WHERE:
Corner of 17 Mile Drive & Sunset Drive (Hwy 68)
Pacific Grove, CA 93950
(Curbside street parking available)

Trail Route (provided by MapMyHike)




Since there will be only minimal elevation gain on this trek we will try to maintain between 2.5 to 3.0 mph average pace. Everyone is encouraged to maintain their own individual paces within his/her comfort limits however the group goal is to work up to a 3 mph average pace. Since this is a group hike, we will pause at major street and/or trail junctions to wait for everyone to regroup.

Our route will take us along portions of paved road and dirt trails adjacent to well manicured golf courses. We'll start out in the far northwestern section of Pebble Beach at the corner of 17 Mile and Sunset Drives in Pacific Grove and hike into Pebble Beach passing by the Spanish Bay resort on our way out to Point Joe. We'll loop around and head back encompassing the Forest Lodge area on our way back to the starting.




NOTE: Please bring headlamps or flashlights so that you may safely illuminate the foot path ahead of you as we hike. Walk will commence promptly at 10 minutes past the posted start time.




RESPONSIBILITY:
Please be aware that we expect you to take responsibility for your safety while we are out on the trails. This means being prepared with adequate hiking gear and making sure the difficulty level of the event IS NOT beyond the limits of your health & conditioning. We understand that your "Yes" RSVP to this event means you accept this. For more information regarding safety, please refer to the Monterey Bay Area Hiking Group "About" section for more details.
