About the event
This is a loop from the Muir Beach parking area, taking in valleys and hills with great views. This year we plan an extension to make it about 9 miles and 1600 ft elevation gain. We warm up by ascending 400ft by way of some steep steps, through the hamlet of Muir Beach to the awesome Muir Beach overlook. After a sojourn on the cliff tops a trail descends by switchbacks and picks up the previous route again in the Redwood Creek valley. The charismatic Pelican Inn awaits to reward our travels https://www.pelicaninn.com/about/
About an hour and 15 mins drive from Oakmont. Meet at the Berger at 8.30am, bring water, lunch, and poles if only for the creek crossing. Dress in layers for the coast. Hike leader Martin Johns 330-815-5167.
