From: user 4.
Sent on: Monday, January 19, 2009 9:56 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Bay Area Ridge Trail & More!

What: Hike # 12 - Coyote Creek (StoneGate to Metcalf Park) ~ 9 Miles

When: January 24,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: NOTE ON MY CAR WINDSHIELD FOR THOSE THAT COME LATE (After ~11:15AM) BUT WILL WAIT IF YOU CALL ME IN TIME.

The Hike: This is an easy hike and so good for beginners. It's essentially flat. We'll be going one way only along the Coyote Creek. At the end of this hike just past Metcalf Park we'll shuttle back to the start point. And so I may need volunteers to park just south of Metcalf Park to shuttle all of us back to Tully. More on this later. We'll have a short break midways. See the file below for trail details and maps.

Parking#1: From HWY 101, exit on Tully and go westward. Just after Kenoga Dr. on your left you'll see a parking lot for a library and ballfields. Go in there and park in the ballfields parking lot. See below for a google map of the location.

Parking#2: For the few volunteers that have a lot of room in their cars if you could park near metcalf park just south of Forsum Rd but before Metcalf Rd on the creekside of Monterey HWY where there is a small gravel parking lot. See map below for location and directions. I'll be there to shuttle you to the hike start point ~10:40AM. It's possible Tom may have enough room and can shuttle all of us and this will not be necessary but wait for more news on this

Meeting point: I'll be visible in parking area with my routine tan baseball cap and my dark blue honda crv. Call if you are running late or get lost at[masked]

Optional After hike event: Firehouse No.1 Bar and Grill (but I am open to suggestion and there are many other places all around there that we can check out before deciding.) If there is interest we could do a mini pub crawl or at least a walking tour of downtown SJ.
