Sierra Singles Purisima Creek 2C Hike

Join us at this lesser known gem along the coast of Half Moon Bay. Purisima Creek features a wide variety of vegetation, including towering redwoods, coastal scrub, ferns, berries and wildflowers.

This 10 mile hike through the preserve begins with a long slow climb and is recommended for strong and experienced hikers only.

Cancellation: Heavy rain cancels.

Bring: Lunch, snacks and a good supply of water. Wear hiking boots and layered clothing.

Meet: 11:00 AM at the Higgins-Purisima trailhead.

Directions: From the Highway 92 and Highway 1 intersection in Half Moon Bay, travel on Highway 1 south approximately 4.3 miles. Turn left on Verde Road. After turning on to Verde Road and traveling 1/4-mile, continue straight to remain on what becomes Purisima Creek Road. (Verde Road splits off to the right.) Travel approximately 3.7 miles on Purisima Creek Road to reach the Preserve.

For Google maps use "2798 Purisima Creek Road, Half Moon Bay, CA".

Leader: Jeff Sanchez, (510)[masked], or [masked].

    Hi Jamie, I'm coming from Benicia Vallejo area and I can meet you @ somewhere before the bay bridge, if that works for you. Just let me where and what time and I'll be there. I can share the coast if you want to drive.
