Cabrillo College PE 37 (Section #62655)
Instructor: Phil Kaplan
Phone: 477-3700 x1529

We meet each Wednesday at 9:20 AM and leave soon after. Do not be late! If you are meeting us at the hike site you will need to consult with me ahead of time as to the exact location and time. “Cost Plus” as a meeting place refers to the Gateway Shopping Center at 450 River Street in Santa Cruz, not “Costco”. E-mail is generally the best way to contact the instructor.

We may encounter poison oak, stinging nettle, ticks, wasps and mosquitoes on many of our hikes. Light-colored lightweight long pants and insect repellent are advisable. Always check for ticks and shower and wash clothes to avoid poison oak after each hike. Depending on the time of the year, expect muddy or dusty conditions. Bring plenty of water and energy snacks and wear sunscreen. Good footwear is required. Arrive early to use the restroom as we will be in areas without facilities.
