San Mateo Peak Trail
This hike is led by GWH IE Ambassador Joy! 
The first 10 members to arrive will receive a special Girls Who Hike giveaway! 
An Adventure Pass is REQUIRED for this hike!

Meeting Location/Time: 
We will be meeting at the Morgan Trailhead. Morgan Trailhead (5W02) is located off of Ortega Highway (SR74) in the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness Area. From Ortega Highway you will turn SOUTH on SOUTH Main Divide Road. You will travel a few miles down and the trailhead will be located on your right. The road to the trailhead is paved. Once there we will begin the hike to the peak. If time, weather temps, and the gals permit, I would like to maybe check out Elsinore Peak which is located in the same area. We will be starting the hike at 0730 hours since there is no shade on this trail and I would like to beat the heat!

Date: Saturday June 9th
Time: 0730am (to beat the heat!)
