CAR CAMPING TRIP
HIKE 1 mile from the trailhead
WORK on the Terrace Creek Trail from the North Coast Ridge Road.
We have received permission to work on this closed trail. However, all participants must be approved in advance. This will be a good introduction to backpacking and trailwork. Plus a chance to learn how to use a crosscut saw. Work on the Terrace Creek Trail. There is water along the trail and at our camp location. OPTIONAL 2 day trip. If people want to leave after work on Sunday there may be an option to do this.
There is work for all abilities. There will be lots of crosscut saw work plus brushing with loppers and hand saws on this trip. If you are allergic to poison oak, there is work that does not involve PO.
MEET: Big Sur Multi Agency Facility 8 A.M. DON'T BE LATE!
IMPORTANT: Meetup directions may not be the best. In you mapping program, search for:
Big Sur Station, 47555 CA-1, Big Sur, CA 93920
The Big Sur Multi Agency Facility is at Big Sur Station. It is on the east (inland) side of Highway One, about a half mile south of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. For those coming from the north, after you pass Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, you cross the Big Sur River on an inconspicuous bridge. Then as you start the uphill, there is a left turn lane; use this left turn lane to turn in to the Multi Agency Facility at Big Sur Station. If you go over a larger bridge, and get to the Big Sur Bakery, you have gone too far.
LEADER APPROVAL REQUIRED due to the access issues; contact leader for acceptance on this trip and meeting details.
