Update: Please bring your bike. Bring parking pass if you have one. We will carpool from the entrance to George's picnic area with our bikes. This would allow us to to bike from the winter gate to Aptos Creek trail saving us 3-4 miles hiking on the fire road. When we reach Five Finger Falls we will review our situation. Once we go beyond Five Finger Falls there will be no turning back.
This trip is an all day hike. In case we are delayed and have to walk to the road in the dark we should carry flashlights and plenty of snacks and water. Take layers for the weather and extra water shoes.
The trip is approximately 19-20 miles including 5 miles of following the creek bed after passing Five Finger Falls climbing over log jams, climbing over rock walls, and scrambling up gullies around water falls. At the origin we clamber out of the canyon up to Aptos Creek Road.
There are dozens of trees to climb under and over. The most difficult spot is probably "the wall". http://img.geocaching.com/cache/large/a9c235e0-7060-487d-bf84-8811b8527d78.png We must stay together through the journey to help each other get through the obstacles.
Sign up will be on the waitlist and needs organizer approval and limited to 8 people. Terms and conditons are on the pages tab. This is a highly risky activity.
