Hike to a shipwreck

Hike leader: Fearless leader Jose

OkI know I said I would do this in July but the high demand(people are still emailing me for directions!) has changed my mind and i will do this in july and june. Also I will correct my mistakes. First i will not go at breakneck speed(dammit skinny people don't get ahead of me). I will take more breaks and I will take an easier way back. Also i will go all the way to the main shipwreck and not splitting up the group. Also the hike will be on a saturday, so I will get a good nights sleep on friday and be on my game. (Unless I get a Date ;-) ) this is a real shipwreck we are going to. It was called the dominator and it wrecked off the coast a long time ago by the looks of the rust. But come to this hike you see dolphins sometimes and seals and whales if we are lucky and the sounds of the ocean and waves are sootheing. the only bad thing is the rocks.

When: Saturday June1,[masked]:00 am

GO to the bathroom before you get here!!!!!!!!!!!!! no toliets anywhere, unless you jump in the water

What to bring: Plenty of Water, hat, sunblock, good walking shoes, walking sticks if you have bad balance, snack

Hike level: Advanced beginner 6 miles roundtrip, 300 feet elevation gain/loss, 4 hours

Hike description: Ok why does it take 4 hours roundtrip to walk 6 miles there and back. It is simple we walk on beach rocks half the time! We start on the bluff 300 feet above the beach and walk down to the beach. we pass the surfers and start walking on the rocks on and off til we get there. YOUR BALANCE WILL BE TESTED and there rocks are sometimes wobbly and loose sometimes. I WILL GO SLOW SO NO ONE EATS IT! We will take another way back to avoid walking on the rocks, well mostly. when we are almost there there is a pipe, next to it are rocks covered with cement. walking up it is like walking up stairs and is very easy because the cement is very grippy

Rain cancels

Dogs ok but on leash at all times

email me if you have any questions

    What is the guesstimated hike time on this one?

    May 30, 2013

    • jose

      we are taking a faster way back, but I am walking slower so no old ladies fall this time. last time it was 3 hours and 15 minutes, but that was at breakneck speed. so I guess about 3 hours 45 minutes max once we start. so figure getting back just before 1:00pm
