Hiking and Fishing in Paradise

Hiking and Fishing in Paradise

WHO: Hikers 12 years old and up

WHAT: Will discover the wonders and uniqueness of Henry W. Coe State Park through this short-term, no-stress class. The spring flowers, hiking, swimming and fishing will be at their best. This class consists of an informative evening classroom overview of the park, interactive discussion of essential equipment and fishing tips followed by an all-day hike to enhance the classroom information. The Saturday hike will start with a scenic drive to a staging area, then a moderate 4 mile walk to Mississippi Lake. The group will divide into mini guided hiking groups so class members can safely walk at their own comfortable pace. There will be several hours at the lake for exploring, fishing, swimming or just relaxing. Mid-afternoon the group will have a leisurely return walk of 4 miles with time to relax at the staging area. The $19 fee includes handouts, Henry Coe Park map and park fees.

The evening session will be on Wednesday, 4/27 from 7 p.m. - 9:30 p.m at the Gavilan College Morgan Hill Community Center site.
The hike will be on Sat., 4/30, 7:45 am - 6:00 pm.
