Land of Medicine Buddha Hike

  • November 13, 2012 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Distance: 5.8 miles


Gain: About 1600 feet


Trail Conditions: Some narrow trails bordered by poison oak.


What to bring: Water, snacks, tick repellent, rain jacket and hat if rain threatens.

Loop through deep forest. The terrain is steep and rugged similar to Nisene Marks. Almost no direct sun. There is one stretch where the trail is narrow and slippery with a steep drop off so consider this if you have balance or coordination issues. The full hike is strenuous and not a good hike for beginners.

It can be cooler here than Santa Cruz so bring layers.

Carpool from the white church parking lot, enter from Main St near Soquel (the church building is closer to Center St).  If you aren't going to be a carpool driver then park on the street nearby since we don't actually have permission to park in the lot.

Please read the FAQ. 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.

    What is your best guess as to what hour we will be back at our cars? I know there are a lot of "depends on.."
    Thanks, R

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