Woodward Burn Scar Woody Elliott 2In August, 2020, the Woodward Fire burned about 5,000 acres in remote parts of the Point Reyes National Seashore. After scouting the burn scar in February, we have decided to offer two hikes on the same day! Both groups will observe the variable fire effects and newly-opened views plus big stands of blue-form Lupinus arboreus. Of course, we will hope for some additional surprises!

John Longstreth and Woody Elliott will lead the group on the most comprehensive 7-mile route meeting at the Laguna Trailhead just past the youth hostel. After leaving cars there and carpooling up to the Sky Trailhead, the group will hike from there along Sky Trail, continuing down the Woodward Trail to Coast Camp and then taking the Laguna Trail back to the cars.

The second group, led by Carolyn Longstreth and Susan Schlosser, will also start at the Sky Trailhead and follow the same route but, instead of taking the Woodward Trail, this group will turn back before reaching the Woodward Trailhead and return to the Sky Trailhead parking lot. This route is approximately 4 miles.
