California Central Coast - Scenic Overlook Trail

Hello ladies! I’m Caroline and I’m an ambassador for GWH Central Coast. I will be hosting this sunset hike to the Scenic and Overlook Trails within the Sycamore Canyon Campground. The 3.7-mile trails offers picturesque views of the Pacific Coast. The late afternoon hike will give us an opportunity to trek across the top ridge of Big Sycamore where we should see wildflowers along the trails as well as view the sun as it sets.

NOTE: The start time may be adjusted to reflect what time the schedule sunset will be on this day. 

If you are a registered member and have your punch card, don’t forget to bring it so I can initial it! If you’re not a registered member, you’re more than welcome to attend anyway! You can find out more about how to become one and get a punch card of your own here: https://girls-who-hike.myshopify.com/products/gwh-new-member-kit 
I will not be handing out punch cards at this event. They’re available through purchase of a New Member Kit only. 

What to bring: Headlamp or flashlight as we may be completing this hike in the dark. Water: Bring your own water as it can be very hot and sunny on the trail. Snack: We will be taking a snack break. Ten essential: As always, it is a good idea to bring the 10 hiking essentials.
