Saturday, Feb. 17: On what was forecast to be a sunny and warm winter day, the Adventurers headed coastside for a hike “on the other side of the highway.”
That means they were east of Highway One, rather than one of the pathways they enjoy that’s bluff top above the Pacific Ocean.
Their destination was Quarry Park, which some consider a locals’ secret, although it can be found in various guidebooks.
Most of the uphill two miles is through a eucalyptus forest on a broad trail that was undoubtedly a ranch road at some time. Indeed the Park had been broadened in acreage with a local family donated their land through POST.
It was a good climb, one that got their attention enough to know they were getting a work out but didn’t tear them up completely.
Once on top they’d swung around enough for great views out over the Pacific. They’ll be back (and this time head down the Dolphine Trail)…
