"I love walks on the beach." This is another effort to stay safe while exercising as the day light is getting shorter. This is one of few of my favorite southern California beach. Last time we were here in the North gate of Crystal cove. This time we are going to start from South gate parking the middle gate area. This place does not have an actual trail on the beach, but a paved one once we walk up the stairs and walk back to the parking lot. This is a loop. This was request by few people who love beach walks. Yay beach.
*Parking: you can park inside the state park which will run $15. And you have to remove your car by 20p0 (8:00pm) or receive $97 parking ticket. [They don't really ticket you until 830pm]. We can park in shopping mall (at your own risk) that is across from the South gate of Crystal cove and carefully walk to the parking to the left as entering into "Reef Point"
Bring: Comfortable clothes and may need a jacket for cool evening weather, any (comfortable) shoes are okay, and sandals are fine because we will be walking on the sand for over ½ of the way. Bring at least 1-2 bottle of water and or snack, hiking pole not needed. Flash light not needed but any one bring it if they want. After the hike, we will discuss some places to go and refuel the calories that we've lost.
We will wait 5-10mins before going as a courtesy for people coming late and people who are ready to hike. We know, its California.
Message me if you have any question(s) regarding the hike. See you there.
