About the event

Join the OTG crew as we explore the 300+ mile Redwood Coast Adventure Trail.  We'll begin our way in Crescent City and work our way south to the quaint village of Mendocino.   The track is a mixture of pavement and mostly well graded dirt and gravel roads.  Along the way, we'll visit a number of points of interest along the coast and in the mountains.  This event is likely to include a number of shorter hikes (1-3 miles).  Given the time of year, we may encounter rain along the way, so prepare appropriately.
