FAQ

  • Climate and Condition

    CLIMATE: Temperatures year round are in the 80s. In the mountains early mornings will be cool to the mid 50s. The trip habitats range from the arid southwest to very humid coastal. Elevations range from sea level to 5,000 feet.
    Rain is a possibility at almost any time of year.

    CONDITIONS: Walking generally on maintained paths and trails, NO bushwhacking. The drive to the high mountain area is VERY bad, but once there the road is level or slightly inclined.
