MishaRoute Climbed: Santa Lucia Trail Date Climbed: March 29th, 2003  Sucess!


What a wonderful day-hike! Weather was absolutely gorgeous! We ran only into one couple on the trail, so we had this mountain pretty much for ourselves most of the day. Hike up from Memorial Park took slightly over 3 hours, descend ~2 hours. Only one downside - huge amount of flies on the trail. We hoped to avoid them due to the early season, but apparently they already sensed warm weather and beginning of the summer. All in all, day very well spent!

Nice views on the way up, although they were limited at the top by the tree cover. A beautiful day for a hike.

Weather observer on Marble/Cone forest fire. Spent 5 nights on top taking temps and dew points every hour on the hour. Heard the news that Elvis died while on the mountain.

Hiked with Ryle. We descended in the dark with one crappy LED headlamp between us. A little over 3 hours round trip.

Nice day trip from the Bay Area. Left at 7:50am, arrived at trailhead in 3 hours, hiked to the top and was back home at 9:00pm to rent a movie. I headed up in sneakers, a t-shirt, and running shorts expecting the sunny weather to continue all the way up. It did, but above 4460 feet I was in the shade, hiking on snow, and suddenly I wished I had a long sleeve t-shirt with me. The only guy I saw in the snow area was wearing a North Face jacket. Anyway, once you get to the summit, its nice and exposed... and most importantly, it was sunny. I didn't expect the Indians Ranger Station to be closed (it was open the last time I came on June 26, 1999 - but there were too many flies then) so I wasn't able to get a NF Adventure Pass for this trip. More photos and a longer trip report here.
