Skyline <=> Sea ~28 miles 3000 ft

  • April 6 · 8:00 AM

A key exchange hike where you can choose your trail-head (Waddell beach or Saratoga Gap)  and most likely followed by dinner at some local restaurant: in the past only torrential rain has foiled the restaurant bit! 

We'll try to keep to have the two groups with a similar number of people to make the carpooling to the trailhead and return as easy as possible keeping the number of cars to the minimum. We'll work out the details as we get closer to the hike. Notice that the hike requires a long drive to the trail-head.

To sign up, place yourself on the waiting list, and, if we know you, either David or myself will move you to the attending list. If you haven't hiked with neither of us, answer to the question in the RSVP about  your previous hikes. 

The number of participants will be capped at 16.

Trailheads & People list - if you are on the attending list, add yourself to the spreadsheet.

** MAPS ** From Sky to Big Basin and Big Basin to Sea

** Carpooling to trailheads ***: we'll all meet in a common location and divide the groups by trailhead for Saratoga Gap and Waddell. Details to come closer to the date emailed to people on the attending list.

    Yvon, did you see my Garmin Origon GPS in the trunk of your car. I'm missing it and last checked it at the end of the hike.
    Thanks

      We wondered what happened to you, and why you didn't show up for dinner. Somebody said that you were on your way to join us.

    Thanks Giulia & David. I had always wanted to do the Skyline <=> Sea hike. And now I can cross this off my list. I must say that I was needlessly worried about the distance. While I was in some pain it didn't feel like 28ish miles. Not even close.

    Great hike! It was good to meet everyone on the trail and share a beer and dinner afterwards. The schnapps along the way was good too! Thanks David & Giulia for organizing.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
