Hike at Purisima Creek Redwoods

  • July 8, 2012 · 11:30 AM

Hi everyone,
This is a 9.1 mile moderate+ and gorgeous hike.

Dogs are not allowed in the preserve sad
Please try to carpool as parking is very limited.

Hike Highlights: Redwood forests, great views, fun people and chocolates ;)

Meet at the Higgins Purisima Trailhead at 11:30AM.

From the junction of CA 1 and CA 92 in San Mateo County, drive south on 1 [towards Santa Cruz] 1.2 miles, then turn east [left] onto Higgins-Purisima Road [or Higgins canyon road..thats the name on the maps].
When u turn left from hiway 1, take the narrow road which goes towards the hills [it looks kinda like a fork there]. Drive on this narrow road about 4.2 miles, to the trailhead on the left side of the road (just past the tiny white bridge). The parking lot is very small. If it is full, you have to park on the side of the road and meet at the parking lot.

Approx GPS for parking lot: N[masked] W[masked]

Bring enough water, lunch, some snacks to share if you like [remember, tastier snacks gets you more friends ;)] and some warm clothing.

Here's the link which has the map of the park and the loop which we will be taking highlighted in yellow . We will be starting the hike at the west entrance on 'Higgins purisima road'.


Hope to see u there! :)

NOTE: If you are not familiar with the trails here, wait at the intersections and have a map as it can be a bit tricky here.

Disclaimer: Its your own responsibility to look after yourself on the hike if u decide to join us. You assume all the risks including sharing my lunch ;)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
