XEROX Mountaineering & Backpacking Club
REFUGIO STATE BEACH Car Camp 20-21 October 1990
When: Saturday, October 20 through Sunday, October 21. Arrive at the campground anytime after 8:00 AM. Check out time is 2:00 PM Sunday.
Brief:A car-camp on the beach with optional easy day hike(s); elevation gain 80 ft; 4 miles round trip.
What:This will be the club's first overnight outing at a coastal location. It will be a relaxing weekend with easy hikes along the coast, or you can spend your weekend sunbathing on the beach. There is a possibility of a trip to Gaviota Hot Springs (actually warm springs) which would involve a 12 mile drive and a half mile hike.
Topo Map:Tajiguas and Solvang 7.5 minute series (USGS).
Weather:The weather is usually very mild this time of year, expect highs in the low 70s and lows in the low 50s.
Car Pooling:Because of the cost for additional vehicles, carpooling is recommended. I will try to coordinate car pool arrangements.
Directions:Follow US 101 northbound through Santa Barbara. Approximately 15 miles past Santa Barbara exit at Refugio Road. Turn left just off the freeway and then turn right into the State Beach. Or just follow the signs for Refugio State Beach.
Questions/Reservations: To make reservations, get car pool information, or if you want more details, contact Randy Ortland at (805) 966-9422 day or evening.
