Trip

Backpack - Shi Shi Beach

Super chill backpack and hang out on the beach at Shi Shi

  • Easy/Moderate
  • Casual
  • Mileage: 12.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 200 ft
  • Pace: 1.5-2ish

3-4pm (TBD) Trail head

** PLEASE REQUEST LEADER'S PERMISSION AFTER AUGUST 15th - LEADERS PERMISSION REQUIRED ONLY SO I CAN BE SURE TO TALK TO ALL WHO SIGN UP **

*** PLAN:
FRIDAY: Find parking, hike to the beach, set up camp, hopefully have a campfire, go to bed
SATURDAY: Wake up whenever (I like sleeping pretty late, the beach is way too cozy), have breakfast, go explore tidepools, maybe take a walk as far as we can go, come back and chill at the beach the rest of the day, maybe see some bears
SUNDAY: Wake up, hike back to our cars, drive home

Folks that are interested in this trip should be aware that temperatures will probably be cooler and there will probably be some to significant amounts of rain.  I have a tarp and have never had a problem having a fire.

Bear cans and water *filters* are required. Water treatment is strongly discouraged.

NOTE: this trip will include a fee for the permit TBD

We will hike at a slow pace, taking frequent breaks - photography is encouraged. To keep the group together we may opt to have the slowest hiker lead.

We will stop for an extended lunch (~20 minutes) or when we get to camp.

We will break camp and head back to our cars Sunday morning around 9am.


** NOTE ** This trip is *NOT* recommended if:

- you get bored easily - this is a *VERY* chill trip, we won't have a lot of activities, we will be sitting on the beach for many hours
- you prefer to read in your tent the rest of the day once you get in camp (this trip is meant for those that like to be social)
- you like to keep to yourself on a hike and would prefer not to talk to others
- you are awake earlier than 5am and get bored waiting for other folks to wake up
- you don't like, or have problems with, hiking at a slower pace
