IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS & CORNELL NORCAL EVENTS

As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have become too much of a risk to the community.
As a result of the growing number of cases, we have decided to focus on keeping the Cornell NorCal community connected via virtual events in the meantime. We will keep this community up to date on any changes on upcoming events. We hope to see you healthy at an event in the near future.
If you have questions about the status of specific events, please check our website or email us at info@cornellnorcal.com.

Sincerely,

Cornell NorCal Board of Directors

Registration is closed

Don't miss the opportunity to hike Gray Whale Trail with Cornell alumni and friends. You’ll be treated to incredible views of ocean and surf - and might even spot a Gray Whale heading north with its calves.


Join Cornell alumni and friends for an exhilarating hike of the Gray Whale Coastal Trail - between Pacifica and Montara.


We'll hike up Pedro Mountain, starting on the Gray Whale Trail, then up a short, somewhat steep face with incredible views of the ocean and surf.

We'll continue up Pedro Mountain Road (the old 1914-1947 road between Pacifica and Montara), and up on to Pedro Mountain itself, above the new tunnel. Depending on the group, we’ll either retrace our steps, or continue to the new Devil's Slide Park, and then about 1 mile back to the parking lot at the trailhead.


If we are lucky, we may see Gray Whales heading north with their calves. It will be just at the start of the migration path north to Alaska, from Baja California.


Date: Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 1:00PM. Please arrive 10 minutes early.


Location: Meet at Gray Whale Cove parking lot by 1:00PM (http://goo.gl/maps/Bpjp4). The trailhead is directly next to the parking lot (5929 Pacific Coast Hwy, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019)


Trail Length: About 1000 feet of vertical gain, about 6 miles, with possible side trips if desired.


Post Hike Meal: We will announce the restaurant location (in nearby Half Moon Bay) via email the night before the hike.


Special Notes: Wear RED so we can easily keep the group together. Make sure you dress in layers, since even on nice days it can get windy, and sometimes the fog can come in surprisingly quickly.


Cost: $2
