    Wonderful trip with a great group and the water in the gorge was very warm!

    The mileage for the hike was most likely greater that 8 miles that the link below shows.

    I really enjoyed it as it was my first time in a gorge and my daughter found it challenging too. We had a great time.

    Where is Arroyo Seco? Is it Hwy 101 in Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino, or which county?

    July 31, 2014

    • Shannon B 😍

      Yes, but off 101 not 1. It's just douth of Soledad. Sorry I don't know the county.

    Hi can I have two kids age 8 & 11..Can I bring them?

    August 2, 2014

  • Lori/Lorraine

    The website still says 7PM but it is actually supposed to be 7AM so we can set up camp long before dark. Say 11AM. Right?

      Shannon sent an email, but some may not have received it. She plans to leave Sac around 9am, and with a lunch stop/break, should arrive at the campground around 2pm.

      July 31, 2014

    • Lori/Lorraine

      I did not receive that email until Peggy forwarded it to me. I had cancelled auto emails from meet up. Arriving by 2 PM sounds about right.

    Is this a "car camping" style trip, or is it a "pack-yer-stuff-in" to the campsite type trip? How far are the campsites from the vehicles?

  • David W.

    Hi. This trip says it starts at 7 pm on Sunday ?

      Jules, many people like to carpool. Janice here has offered. Let me know what you decide :-)

      July 29, 2014

  • Elle

    Hello, I am also new to the group. I would appreciate riding in a carpool. I look forward to meeting you all.

      Elle, we would be happy to have you join us. Janice above has offered a ride. Let us know :-)

    Hi, I am new to the group. heard about this from Lincoln. Looking forward to going on this trip with y'all.

    Hi, Shannon
    Will there be showers? What kind of flotation device: boat, life vest?

    April 18, 2014

    • Lincoln

      The Arroyo Seco campground has coin operated showers. For a flotation device my preference is a life vest. Another good option is a cheap pool ring, the one that you can get for $5.00. There are narrow passages in the gorge and you do not want something too large. Also, a dry bag comes in very handy. Get one that can fit a day pack.
