JULY 2, SUNDAY: EL CORTE DE MADERA OPEN SPACE SHADY HIKE

Leader: Gary Weiss (415)279-5570 garysfx@gmail.com. Meet: 9:00am By Starbucks under the Safeway sign at Market & Dolores. Depart 9:15. Rating: Moderate, 9 miles, 1200 feet elevation gain. This park is beautifully shady for a July 4th weekend hike. It's primarily redwood forest with sections of fir, oak and madrone. I'd estimate that about 95% of the hike will be under tree cover. We'll start from trailhead CM-03 off of Skyline Blvd. In the unlikely event that all of the spaces are taken, there is a good-sized parking lot about 1/4 mile south. There is also a connecting trail between the 2 entrances. We'll stay in the less-visited southern portion of the park. There are some fairly hefty ups and downs but most of the stretches are pretty well-behaved. We'll be doing a counter-clockwise loop, passing one of the few old growth redwoods that remain in the park. Bring: Lunch, snacks, much more water than you think you'll need, sturdy hiking shoes and insect repellent. Event will occur rain or shine. Driving distance 68 miles round trip. Carpooling cost: $6.00 per passenger. Alternate meeting place: There is parking for about 10 or so cars at this pulloff. Very few people tend to park here, preferring the large parking lot about 1/4 mile south. Here is a link to the location on Google Maps. The gate just past this parking strip will say "CM-03". PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU PLAN ON MEETING US THERE. We'll meet at the trailhead around 10:15, give or take depending on traffic. https://www.google.com/maps/@37.4014324,-122.297881,3a,37.5y,244.35h,72.15t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sCJio90F-6TluWP1OVog0eg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1
