This hike consists of a steady incline for 1.5 miles. The only junction is 200 yards before the top, where we'll turn right to complete the climb.
At the top, there is a picnic table and 360 degree incredible views that are especially wonderful at night.
This particular hike is a pot-luck. Please bring some food and drink to share (https://www.meetup.com/Outdoor-Singles/pages/23168523/Snack_and_Beverage_Share/). We'll be joining at least 2 other meetup groups (Hiking Plus and Hike-to-Health). Hike-to-Health will be hiking from a different starting point and will arrive at this same destination at about the same time as us. The RSVP count incudes this group, and Hiking Plus, but does not include the Hike-to-Health group).

From the 101 take the Ventu Park exit (3 miles north/west of the 23) and go South toward the ocean. At Lynn Road turn right. VERY soon you will pass an open space on your left. Watch for the entrance to Regal Oak Ct on your left, where you will turn left. Take it all the way to the end and park. This is a neighborhood, so please keep the noise down.
We will meet not quite at the end of the road. We'll cross a gate along the side of the street and across from the houses, then move 100 yards to the right and enter the trail.
