Hike

The parking lot is off PCH next to El Moro Elementary School. We will meet by the ranger station.

Parking is $15 per car [CASH ONLY from what I remember], so car pool is definitely recommended.

There are a couple of different trails on this one but we are planning on doing the 3.5 mile loop. As Mithilesh mentioned in his post, it should take 2-3 hours.

Bring sunscreen, hats, water, snacks, energy bar/trial mix.

      So, dont pack lunch?

      April 5, 2013

    • Sadhna

      sounds good but since its such a big group i think a food court sort of a setup would work better. fashion island maybe. splitting the check has always been a hassle with big groups. lets review our options tomorrow! :)

    Hey! I didn't realize this was an Indian heritage group when I signed up. Is being in that culture a requirement?

    1 · April 5, 2013

    • Mitch

      Hello Nick, welcome to the grp. There is no such requirement. It's all about having fun irrespective of your ethnicity, race etc.

      April 5, 2013

    sorry ..got an appointment; next time

    April 2, 2013

  • Mitch

    Yash, Sweta, Vaibhav - Welcome to the meetup grp. This hike is one of the very moderate ones. It's a 3.5 miles round trip with 700 ft of elevation. The hike time is 2-3 hours depending on the groups pace. It's a loop hike, so we can go either clock wise or counter clock wise. There are no tress for shades and hence there is a good view of the ocean from the hike. The temperature is going to be around 61 degrees over the weekend. Bring sunscreen, hats, water, snacks, energy bar/trial mix. Small packets should suffice. Parking is $15 per car, so car pool is definitely recommended.

    Disclaimer: I am not a pro hiker. Just have done a couple of moderate hikes here and there, but not this one and I am looking fwd to do this one :)
