Walking Adventure Group
January 16: Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park
CANCELLED due to predicted heavy rain and high winds. This outing will be rescheduled to hunt for fungus in the near future.
January 23: Loch Lomond Reservoir (dog friendly)
Meet at the Loch Lomond Reservoir at 100 Loch Lomond Way, Felton or sign up for the VANPOOL. The vanpool leaves Louden Nelson promptly at 8:45am. If you don't get in the VANPOOL, carpool if you can. It is a bit tricky driving up there. Plus, Loch Lomond is officially closed to the public for the season, so Park staff will let us in the gate (prompt arrival is recommended). We will hike the trails with our personal guide, City Park Ranger Ryan Wall. Easy to moderate terrain with a few steep stretches and/or steps. Walking stick recommended. Leashed dogs welcome.
January 30: Capitola Village (dog friendly)
Meet at Esplanade Park (patch of green grass next to the beach in Capitola Village). Parking in Capitola Village is now by paystations, limited to three-hour stays at a rate of $1.50/hour. We will begin our walk with a climb up one of Capitola's hidden staircases that leads to the top of Depot Hill with sweeping views of Monterey Bay. We will then circle through the neighborhoods down to the quaint walkway along Soquel Creek and finish our walk with a jaunt to the end of Capitola Wharf. Easy to moderate terrain with a few steep sections. Do not fear: the hidden 86-step staircase has handrails, two landings, and we will only go up! Leashed dogs welcome.
Hope to see you soon at WAG!
More January walks coming soon!
