Scenic 9-mile walk that is excellent training for the walk from Santiago to Finisterra/Muxia. We will meet in Dana Point Harbor, walk up Golden Lantern Street to the Salt Creek Trail. Walk along the beautiful Monarch Links Golf Course and then walk the length od Salt Creek and Strands Beaches. We will climb the stairway up to the Strand and hike through the headlands for sweeping views of the coastline and Catalina Island. Then walk through Heritage Park back to the harbor.
