3C Hike, Fall Creek Unit, Henry Cowell State Park
➤ 10+, 2000+ foot gain. We will meet in front of San Lorenzo Valley High School, in the parking lot, then take the High School Trail to the No. Fork trail, to Lost Empire to Big Ben, Truck Trail, No Name, Ridge and Scape. We will stop for a snack at Big Ben and for lunch at Barrel Mill. This route goes over several creek crossings including one via a makeshift bridge. There will be steep climbs on two trails: Lost Empire and No Name. If it is a particularly hot day, we may opt to forego No Name and finish our hike down alongside Fall Creek. Bring sufficient water and snacks, sturdy hiking shoes. Hiking poles may be useful for the steep climbs and for crossing a log bridge. Most of the hike is shaded or in dappled sunlight. Directions: Head South on CA-17 towards Santa Cruz. Take exit 3 for Mount Hermon Road toward Felton/Big Basin. Turn right onto Mt. Hermon Rd. for 3.5 miles.

What we're about

This is the Meetup Group for the Singleaires activity section of the Loma Prieta Chapter of the Sierra Club.

We have hikes every Sunday followed by Potlucks hosted at members' homes. Our hikes are open to the public. Potlucks are for members of Sierra Singleaires, or for guests of members who go on that day's hike and who are acceptable to the host as a guest. (As potlucks are held in private homes all attendance is at the discretion of the host.)

We list only our hikes and a few featured events on this Meetup site for the public to attend. We also have other activities for paid up members of the Sierra Singleaires.

The primary listing of all of our hikes and events is the Sierra Singleaires Schedule. It is mailed every three months to all paid up Sierra Singleaires Activities Group members as well as being e-mailed to them. If you are not a member of the Sierra Singleaires you are missing out on members-only potlucks, campouts, backpacking, mule packs in the Sierra Nevada, parties, group e-mail, and other special events.

Becoming a Member of Sierra Singleaires

Members are Sierra Club members who generally are over 50 and single, but membership is open to all who are interested in furthering conservation activities as well as participating in weekend hikes, cycling, backpacking, car camping trips, snow activities and other events. Guests are always welcome on our scheduled hikes. If you are not already a member of the Sierra Club, you can take advantage of this special membership offer. (!form=00P3100000SKGM1EAP)
