Come join us as we POWER-HIKE one of the most beautiful areas of San Diego! This hike takes you through gorgeous canyons, with some amazing ocean views. We meet at the corner of Carmel Valley Road & McGonigle Road (this is the entrance to the "north parking lot" of Torrey Pines State Beach).
Some Things to Know About this Group BEFORE Joining:
~We ONLY hike on Torrey Pines State Park trails & beaches.
~We hike MOSTLY Tuesdays & Thursdays @ 10:00 AM (we will occasionally hike on another day of the week, but always around 10:00).
~This hike is meant for working out, not sight-seeing, so please keep that in mind before joining.
We keep a pretty brisk pace & there are some fairly steep hills, etc. Should you get separated from the group, the trails are well marked, & it's easy to find your way to the beach & back to the parking lot. I do try to have stopping points along the way to help our slower hikers catch up, but we like to keep things moving, so if you are more of a "beginner", this group may not be for you. Our hikes have several options (depending on the tides)... a2-3 miler that should take about an hour, a 4-6 miler that takes about 1.5-2 hours or our longest hike which can be anywhere between 6-9 miles & takes up to 3 hours.
We also have some occasional social events, i.e. picnics or lunch at a local restaurant after our hikes, which are always a lot of fun & a great way to get to know each other better!
**I get charged to run this group, so I ask each regularly participating member for a $5 annual contribution to help with my MeetUp fees.Feel free to try the group out before making your contribution. Thanks so much for your help with this & see you on the trails!!
