Length: 5 Hike Course (Once a Month, 3 Hours Per Hike)
Instructor: Brian Remas
Session 1 Location: Del Mar Beach (Starting point in Directions below)
Distance: 4.5 Miles
Follow instructor Brian Remas through several environments throughout San Diego County. Adventurers will learn about what they are seeing, such as the plants and animals, but also what they are not seeing, such as the people that called the area home thousands of years ago. Individuals will learn different hiking skills, health facts, “Leave No Trace” methods, and how to enjoy the outdoors in a safe way.
Our first adventure in this 5 hike series takes place in beautiful Old Del Mar in a less traveled location. Summertime in San Diego tends to be flooded with millions of tourists crowding the malls, restaurants, and of course, beaches. Brain will show adventurers an area that is known by locals, but loved by all.
This trip starts on a flat beach that has hard packed sand (Great for running). The return will be through a trail that gives a beautiful view of the ocean from about 100 feet. The hike ends at a yummy Mexican restaurant where we can have some lunch or have a picnic on the beach.
Be sure to bring:
Athletic shoes (good for hiking or running)
1 liter of water (at least)
Money for lunch & parking
