Wilder Ranch Baldwin Loop Trail - Meet at Kelly's

  • Aug 10, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Distance: About 6 miles.

Elevation Gain: About 500 feet.

Exposure: Mixed Sun and Shade.

Trail Conditions: Steep in places. Ticks and poison oak.

Duration: About 3 hours.

What To Bring: Hat/sunglasses/sunscreen, water, tick repellent.

We'll hike roughly 6 miles with 500 feet gain on Baldwin Loop and another 200 feet down and up on Enchanted Loop.

The first half mile of the Baldwin Loop has more ticks than any other hike we do. If the trail has been cleared of weeds ticks should not be a big problem.

Baldwin Loop is sunny and steep with fantastic views. Enchanted Loop is deep forest and streams, lots of ferns and newts (in season). Some parts are very muddy if it rained recently.

The trail head is at the north end Wilder Ranch SP across Highway 1 from 4 mile beach right after the green buildings. We share the trail with bicycles though often none are seen.

Please read theFAQ. This is an 'at risk' activity. By joining us on this hike you agree to hold the organizers, assistant organizers, and other members harmless. You are responsible for your own safety on the hike.
