Start: 01/31/2014 End:02/02/2014
Difficulty: Strenuous, you should be in decent shape, but nothing crazy. I personally suck at going uphill, so you don't have to be a marathon runner to do this, but we will be doing about 8 miles a day (but we have all day to do it!).
First we will all meet at TroGro and get to know each other, then we will drive 6 hours to Big Sur. After which, we get to see McWay Falls (main image), which is purrrty! But the whole point of this trip is to backpack the Pine Ridge Trail to Sykes Hot Springs. It’s a sweet trail, the first night we get to camp by a creek and wash off. On the second night we will have made it out to Sykes hot springs were we can relax before hiking out and driving home the next day. I did this trail two years ago, and have been itching to go back ever since! It’s a good one, ya dig?
Meet: Meet at TroGro at 6 am (sorry! it's a long drive)
Return: Back at USC by 10 pm Sunday night
Pre-Trip Meeting: Nahhh, but I'll be sure to pester you with emails galore!
