This will be about 7 mile easy to moderate hike through redwood forests and ridges with great views with a lunch spot at a nice overlook under the sun :).
Hike Highlights: Redwood forests, banana slugs, views and fun people.
We can meet at the park parking lot at 11:30am.

Continue straight on La Honda Road/84, about 6.5 miles, to the easy-to-miss junction with Pescadero Road [just after you pass the town of La Honda]. Turn left. Drive about 1 mile south on Pescadero Road, and bear right at the junction with Alpine Road [stay on pescadero rd.].
