$25/$20 for ABF Members
Leader: Ashley Kvitek
Due to parking constraints, this hike is limited to 20 people.
Join Education & Outreach Coordinator Ashley for an adventure on a seldom-visited property acquired by ABF in 2005. October can be warm on the desert floor, so we are headed up in elevation to around 4700 feet for this moderate four mile hike with stunning views of the desert down below. Be sure to bring a snack, there are shade trees along the way! This hike will require a shuttle, so be prepared to help transport other people in your vehicle.
We will be ending our day with a brew at the Nickel Beer Co brewery in Julian.
Bring: Snacks, lunch, lots of water, sturdy shoes, sun protection, and whatever else you need to be comfortable in the varying conditions of fall in the desert-to-mountains transition zone.
Meet: at the Pedro Fages Monument along Hwy S1. It is at exactly mile marker 36. From there, we will pack as many people into as few cars as possible and head to the Tulloch Ranch parking area to begin our hike. Please be prepared to accept others into your vehicle or get into another participant's vehicle.
Hikes & Hops and Bikes & Brews with Anza-Borrego Foundation
Good scenery, good beer, good company
Hikes & Hops and Bikes & Brews connect people with two things in common -- a love of Anza-Borrego and craft beer. Hikes & Hops is a social hike series in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, with Bikes & Brews being the same but with mountain and road bike rides, and a series of craft brewery happy hours throughout Southern California. Join us for a hike and a beer, a bike and a brew or let us come to you for a brewery event!
**This event includes the consumption of alcohol. Families with children are welcome if they can keep up with the group or be carried. ABF may request photo ID for any participant who looks 30 and under. Only those over the age of 21 will be allowed to participate in the “hops” portion of the event. Be responsible when drinking. Camping in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is encouraged and there are several hotels in Borrego Springs. At the very least, please visit one of our Borrego Partner restaurants for a good meal before heading home.
