Eric Wilner: upcoming events

Sun Oct 6, 2002 9:00 AM Big Basin Hike
(Loma Prieta Sierra Singles:

Take a hike on the cool side of the hills, under the redwoods. This 11-mile loop takes us past some nice scenery down to the Berry Creek Falls, and then back up among the greenery. There's quite a bit of elevation gain, but nothing terribly steep. Pace will be moderately fast. Wear good hiking footwear, and bring lunch, trail snacks, plenty of water, and carpool money (50 miles round trip; about $6/car park fee). Expect to return to the carpool point around 5-5:30 PM. Rain cancels. Meet at carpool point #2.
Celebrate the anniversary of Frodo's run-in with the Nazgûl with this lengthy trudge, with various stream crossings (though they do have bridges). Sorry, no visits to Imladris this time.

Directions to LPSS carpool point #2 (Los Gatos Public Parking Lot): Exit 17 onto Saratoga Ave (Highway 9) west in Los Gatos. Go past first light (University), then take the first right into the free public parking lot. Meet near the Saratoga Ave end of the lot.

Sorry, you've missed this one, and there are no future instances on the schedule yet.
