Details

Directions/meeting point: (the meetup.com directions linked above are not always reliable) the meeting point will be at the end of Fassler Ave (http://goo.gl/maps/qcCI1), in Pacifica. I will be driving my Silver Subaru Impreza WRX, license plate ending in 468. I'll be wearing this (http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7166/6685655701_6ab329d4d9_b.jpg) black Sanzaru Games hoodie (if it's not too hot). I'll send out my cell to RSVPs (but as always there is no guarantee of reception)

This week's hike is at Sweeney Ridge (http://www.parksconservancy.org/visit/park-sites/sweeney-ridge.html) in Pacifica. We will start at the southern entrance to the park at the end of Fassler Ave (see link above for directions) and take Baquiano Trail up the hill to Sweeney Ridge Trail, which we will head South on until it ends. On the way back we will take a detour down Horse Trail. In total this should be around 6 miles with around 700 feet elevation gain. A partial GPS recording of the route is here (http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=1755635).

Dress in layers, bring lots of water and snacks. Hopefully the weather will be good, but be prepared for rain and mud. The park allows on-leash dogs, and well behaved dogs are welcome. Carpooling recommended as there is not a ton of parking at the trailhead (though you can park further down Fassler Ave).

If anyone fancies a post-hike beer and a snack, we'll be heading over to Nick's (http://www.nicksrestaurant.net/homepage.html) in Pacifica after the hike.
