All walks begin at 9:30 am from the designated meeting point and are approximately 2 hours unless otherwise noted.


January 18: Upper Pogonip (dog friendly)

Meet at the Upper Pogonip entrance at the end of Spring Street. Park along Spring Street- carpool if you can. We will hike up to the lime kilns and back. Easy to moderate terrain with a few steep sections. Leashed dogs welcome.


January 25: Capitola

Meet at Esplanade Park (patch of green grass next to the beach in Capitola Village). Parking in Capitola Village is now by pay stations, limited to three-hour stays at a rate of $1.50 an 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!


Hope to see you soon at WAG!

Check back here often for future adventures.
