Meet at 8:00 AM Saturday at the B Loop bulletin Board in Mora Campground, reached from US 101 by turning right at SR 110 (before reaching Forks), turning right at Mora Road (SR 110 Spur) and then left into Mora Campground.  Three adjoining campsites near the rest room are reserved.  The prepaid campsite fees of $20 per campsite will be divided equally among participants.  After setting up camp and having a picnic lunch, we'll drive to Railto Beach parking lot, where no parking pass is required and then hike north on Rialto Beach through Hole-in-the-Wall to the next headland, our turnaround point, returning by the same route.  Saturday evening after a camp dinner, we'll have smores around the campfire.

Sunday morning after a camp breakfast, we will pack up camp and regather at 8 AM at the B loop bulletin board for the short drive to Second Beach trailhead. We will then hike the .7 mile to Second Beach and then south on the beach to its end and back, stopping to see marine life enroute.  After hiking out, we'll have the option on the drive home to stop for lunch at the Hungry Bear Diner.  Registration for this car camp is by registering for the two day hikes, Rialto Beach and Second Beach.  Leader permission is required to assure that everyone registering for one of the hikes will also register for the other one and participate in the overnight encampment.
