Date: Saturday, February 4, 2023, 8:30am to 12:30pm

Parking and meeting point: There is a parking lot at SETS (1628 San Elijo Road, next to Starbucks). You may also park 0.3 miles away at the trailhead (1601 San Elijo Road), where there are about 20 spots along the road.

Meet time in the parking lot by Starbucks: 8:30am

Route description: The route begins off San Elijo Road near the site of the old San Marcos Landfill. From there, we’ll follow the natural Copper Creek Trail that is part of the Rancho La Costa Habitat Conservation Area. There is one section with a steady, moderate incline (then similar descent) – giving you a good opportunity to practice with walking poles if you have them.

Optional lunch: 11pm at SETS Kitchen & Bar, 1628 San Elijo Road, San Marcos 92078. If you plan to attend lunch, please text Karin at 858-780-2660 by Thurs, Jan 19th so she can add you to the table reservation.
