Meeting Location: In front of the Park Headquarters. You'll need to purchase a parking pass for $10 at the Park Headquarters. I encourage you all to carpool. As the date gets closer, we can figure out carpooling. The Park Headquarters opens at 8 and you can purchase your parking pass. Then I'd like to gather and do introductions and hand out giveaways and be on the trail by 8:30am.
GWH Trail Rating - 
YELLOW: Moderate hike, well-signed, elevation gain of between 1,000-2,000ft., low altitude. Novice hikers welcome! (Some say this is a strenuous hike and the elevation is just above 2,000 ft, but it's pretty gradual in elevation changes, so I wouldn't call it RED)

Hi Ladies! This is my first official meetup for the Santa Cruz/San Jose area and am super excited to be hosting! Berry Creek Falls is one of my fave local hikes in the area! This hike generally takes about 5-6 hours and figured we can break at the falls for lunch. Please be sure to bring enough water and snacks and lunch if you'd like. Dogs are not allowed on this trail. This is a ladies only hike. Looking forward to meeting you all!
