Ok so this is now in the correct section. Planning a hike in January for Point Reyes. Start at the Palomarin TH, camp at Wildcat, hang at the beach, then the next day back to the Ranger Station. I think it is 17 miles in two days. A real nice hike. Josh and Jay both of you said you'd be down for this. Anyone else??

Jay I will bring my ipod. 160 gigs of punk rock1

January/Point Reyes Trip on 11/11/2008 18:31:44 MST Print View

A couple of months away but so far these are the folks that have expressed interest:
Me
Jay Wilkerson
Josh Billings
Denis Hazlewood
Dylan Taylor
Ryan Dunne
Aaron Sorenson
Tony Wong

and possibly a few friends of mine. If we have a group of 8-12 I'd assume that we will need a group site. I will take care of getting the site and coordinate logistics and such. Folks if all of you are down, how does the third Saturday in January sound???? This is a beautiful hike with stunning ocean views and on the second day we hike through the coastal mountains back to the Bear Valley Visitor Center. A shuttle is going to be required so we might need a few cars to be at each trailhead.

If anyone else would like to join us, come on and join. Casey Bowden where are you????

Awesome. I'm down.

I was out there around this time last year and the weather was absolutely perfect. I saw a greater variety of large birds than I have anywhere else on that trip...

I'd be interested in going and meeting other Bay Area UL hikers. I'd be glad to help with transportation and shuttle.

Ken,

Which way did you plan on going to get from Wildcat to the Bear Valley Vistor Center?

As an alternative, since car shuttles are required anyway, would you consider going from Wildcat all the way up the Coastal Trail to Limantour Beach? This allows you to cut down to the ocean at Sculptured Beach (just south of Coast Camp) and enjoy a spectacular walk among the waves.

Ken,
The third Saturday is good for me.

The Limantour end is a bit far for me (I'll be officially "old" as of 1/13) I'd prefer to end at Bear Valley.

I'm also interested in Pt. Reyes the third weekend of January (MLK weekend, correct?). It would be great to meet other Bay Area UL backpackers. Is there still room?

Double Posting here:

I was chattin with Ken thru PM's. I'd sign-on with you guys, Josh has been reminding me about it every time we talk, but I just agreed to a work project that full week, both weekends. UGH! An outing the weekend of the 24th would be a great treat after this beast of a project.

If you guys are flexible, keep the 24th in mind. If not, there's plenty of trips to come.

cheers,
-Michael

Michael, I have no problem moving it back a week

Folks Let's put this in writing here, How is January 24th. One night, two days and let's hope that we have good enough weather to do this. If there is a Pacific storm coming in, I will not go. If there is a chance of rain, lets still do it. Tentativly the 24th!@

I'm good for the 24th. No sense in walking into a storm at Wildcat Camp.

Susan and I did an overnight at Sky Camp last Tuesday:Sunny on Tuesday. Wednesday morning the fog was so thick you couldn't see your feet while you were standing on them.
