*RESCHEDULED* Hike at Toro Park

*Sorry I have to reschedule this one!  I have bumped it out one week to the 21st instead of the 14th.  If anyone would like to schedule a hike for the 14th I would be happy to post it for you!*

 

Please see the park website for a park map:

http://www.co.monterey.ca.us/parks/toro_facilities.html#

For general driving directions to the park, the location shown on this MeetUp page should be accurate.

The Oak Grove parking area is the first parking lot to the left after you pass the entry booth.

Please note:  There is an entry fee.  There is some unofficial (read: free) parking outside the park gate, which you're welcome to use if you'd like.  You can walk into the park without paying the fee.  It is not far, and many people do this.  If you choose to drive in, the fee is $8 for the day per vehicle (up to 6 passengers...dogs don't count!). 

Depending on the enthusiasm level of our hikers we can do a fairly easy/moderate hike that is about an hour to an hour and a half, or a slightly longer one with a little more uphill that will run about an hour and a half to two hours.  Neither of the options is strenuous.

This is officially an ON LEASH park.  Dogs are allowed on all trails, leashed.  The hike will be about an hour and a half to two hours.  This park has spotty shade, so please bring water for yourself and your pooches! 

As always, please be prompt if you plan to join us.  We will meet at 10:00.  If you are running a few minutes late and you'd like to try to reach us, send me a text or call at: [masked]-3005.

Hope to see you there!  :)

    I shouldn't hike because of a sore foot. I want meet at the trailhead just to see the people and the dogs. Soon, I will be taking care of three well behaved labs and want to join future hikes.

    Sorry, I have my kids every Sat. Morn and can only make afternoon or evening hikes....

      Sorry you won't be able to make it. There is a recurring Thursday evening hike available and sometimes we do Sunday mornings. There has been little interest in afternoon hikes on the weekends so we haven't planned any, but if anyone else is interested in speaking up for one I can definitely get one on the schedule!

      Thanks Catherine! I am an avid outdoors guy so I will get there sooner or later! Enjoy your hikes and please keep me in the loop!
