ITINERARY:
Thursday, July 11th – San Pedro to Two Harbors (campground, 1 night here).
Friday, July 12th 730 am leave camp, meet down the hill at Two Harbors

Kayakers: **Out of the sake of SAFETY, MUST LAUNCH BEFORE 9AM, as the water is smoother, with the hope that the winds will also be calmer. Historically, the winds pick up on the water for the paddlers, by noon and all into the afternoon. ** - this is the reason I added another night.

Backpackers: Will also hit the trail by 9am, you’ll have 100% sun exposure, but it’ll be cooler than hiking in the heat of the afternoon. We’ll arrive to camp early afternoon.
Saturday, July 13th
Sunday, July 14th – Kayaker on the water by 9-10am, Backpackers on the trail by 9-10am. We’ll arrive in Two Harbors hopefully before 3pm. We’ll have plenty of time to get showered up, relax, grab an early dinner local restaurant then head back to San Pedro.
