HIKE WALKTHROUGH: We begin at the bottom Arroyo Pescadero parking area/trail head. We start by descending from the main part of the trail. We will then be going on a steady leveled trail for good amount of gain for most of the hike. Some unshaded sections, but the hill will give us enough shade. We will have some stops along the way since this is not too difficult and great for those just beginning to hike. Our hike will lead us in a loop that will take us back to the trailhead.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for. You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suit your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
