DAYHIKERS: Henry Cowell SP to Wilder Ranch SP, approx 17 mi

CARPOOL: 7:15am, Los Gatos Park&Ride, corner of Hwy 9 and University Avenue: watch for small brown sign to the right of road that indicates public parking.
This is a one-way hike from Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park headquarters in Felton to Wilder Ranch State Park headquarters in Santa Cruz, passing through Pogonip Park and UCSC land. This one-way hike equires us to shuttle cars. We carpool from Los Gatos; all the drivers drop off their passengers in Felton and proceed to Wilder Ranch. Most of the cars wil be left at Wilder Ranch (the destination of this hike). Only one or two cars shuttle all the drivers to Henry Cowell. PLEASE BRING SANDALS for crossing of the San Lorenzo River (not too deep; not much rain!). Enjoy majestic redwood trees and sparkling ocean views. Bring water and food for the day. Please contact Leaders if you've not hiked with Dayhikers before now. SierraClub asks you to sign their usual liability waiver.

LEADERS: Debbie Benham, 650/[masked]; Joerg Lohse, 408/[masked]

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