When: Sat., Oct. 21, 9 a.m. 2017
The North Group Sierra Club invites the public to a hike on Del Norte Redwood State Park's Last Chance Coastal Trail on Saturday, October 21. Carpools meet at 9:00 a.m. at Ray's Valley West Shopping Center in Arcata or at 10:30 a.m. at the Damnation Creek trailhead (3.3 mi. north of Wilson Creek bridge, west side Hwy. 101.) This medium difficulty, 8 mile hike will be a ramble through lush old-growth upon a stretch of Redwood Highway replaced in the 1930's by the present 101 route, itself soon to be abandoned for more stable inland terrain. With luck, there will be a descent to the beach below. Observe how the main roadway is evolving with the latest round of slope failures. Bring water and lunch. No dogs. For more info, contact leader Ned at (707) 825-3652 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Heavy rain cancels.
