We'll meet in the official parking area that you have to pay to park in, or use a park pass, near the restrooms. If you don't want to pay to park ($6 or $7 bucks) you can park on the street, go down into the park by the overpass, you may have to crawl under a fence, and walk through the buildings and up to the right into the paid parking area to meet us. :)
Let's hike up into the park, at least to the lime kiln ruins. Bring water, layers, snacks, food, lunch, sunscreen, sunglasses, sunhats - hopefully it will be warm. :)
This park has lovely vistas of the coast as your reward for climbing. It's just a few miles outside of Santa Cruz. We'll be going slow on the uphills. Let's go as far as people feel comfortable going. I will have hiked Pinnacles the day before so may be willing to take it easy on this hike. :)
It would be great to see you. It can be done up and back if some want to turn back early, just tell me you are leaving, leave with a buddy, mountain lions have been sighted in this park, and call my office number 831-759-1700 and let me know you got back safely.
