INTERMEDIATE+ LEVEL HIKE!

This hike will be about 6 to 7 miles with expected total "cumulative" elevation gains of 1200-1300+ feet. There are numerous steep uphill and downhill sections. Pace varies from moderate to slightly brisk, depending on the group.

Social time starts at 8:15AM, for those who want to get there early to meet your fellow hikers. Start time for the hike is 8:30AM, sharp. IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT, PLEASE CHANGE YOUR RSVP TO NOT GOING BY 7:30 AM, OR TEXT/CALL MIKE AT[masked] OR VIRGINIA AT[masked]

Expected hiking time, with a couple of stops for picture taking and snacks & water breaks is between 3.0 and 4.0 hours, depending on the group.

Please bring at least 2 liters of water for drinking, hat, sunscreen and sun glasses, and snacks for yourself or to share among the group. Check the weather ahead for best clothing; wear layers.

There are some fairly steep sections, so good hiking shoes are a must and hiking poles usually come in handy!

BTW ~ If you have a smartphone, apps such as MapMyHike or RunKeeper will help create breadcrumbs, in case you need to turn around during the hike.

Hope to see you there, especially since the ocean views are spectacular.

See you soon!

Mike and Virginia
