Stats:

Rocky Coastal hike to shipwreck, 500' gain/loss

mileage varies depending on the group, but between 5-10. Sounds low but believe me after a mile on that coastline you will be thinking you've done 3.

Tides:

High at 6:17 am at 4.9' and at 7:05 pm at 5'

Low at 12:20 am at 1.1' and at 12:43 pm at -.02'

The tides dictate this hike. We will descend to Bluff Cove and work our way south along the shoreline towards Lunada bay, exploring the shipwreck along the way. From there we will take a vote and possibly split up, those wishing to return to their cars can either return the way we came or ascend the steep trail to the streets and hike the streets back to their cars. I plan on working my way down the coast to explore some of the tidepools in the area. There are numerous coastal access points along our route which gives us plenty of chances to turn around without having to double back along the coast. Ive obtained the entry points of these points fron the department of fish and game, and will be emailing each attending member a map of these routes.

Iwould like the group to stay together until Lunada bay though. From there, we can split into 2 and only 2 groups, those wishing to take the trail out and those wishing to continue along the coastline.

As for directions, they are a bit tricky. We may want to meet at a specified point, probably Point Vicente, and caravan from there. more details will follow, but for those wanting to do the coastline, we may be able to arrange a shuttle hike.

More details will follow as we get closer to the date.
