This is a more moderately paced workout walk--open to any women, not just speedsters. It's much easier than our usual jaunts since there's no real gain at the beach.
Are you willing to take a turn hosting a beach hike? As long as you agree to host one with any distance/level, you can join this hike. Be ready to give a date you can host when you sign up.
Since it's so hot inland, we're headed to the coastline to walk along the beach and the surrounding areas. Today our hike will be in Ventura.
Please, no guests. You must be signed up at Fun in the Sun Club Meetup, thereby agreeing to Meetup's Release of Liability (http://www.meetup.com/terms/). Don't show up without signing up here first. Thank you.
Start Time: Arrive EARLIER. It's a good idea to be there at 7:45AM so if you get lost or there's traffic, you'll still be on time. We'll leave when everyone arrives and wait until 8:00AM at the latest. If you're lacing up your boots at 8:00AM, we'll be gone.
Meeting Place in Ventura: Will be sent to participants by day before hike.
Estimated Stats: 8-12 miles, under 400'. We usually finish before 12:30PM.
Pace: For this walk, it's okay if some walk at a moderate pace. Speedier hikers can go all the way to the end of the pier while others catch up.
Bring: Snacks/lunch (we take VERY short breaks), plenty water, first aid kit, trekking poles if you like using them.
Wear: Layers, hat, shoes that are comfortable for beach, boardwalk and sidewalk. You may want to go barefoot on beach.
Dogs: Sorry, no dogs for this one. Some areas don't allow them.
Leave nothing of value in your vehicle at any trailhead.
