It's In The Air!

Ready to get outside? Let's do this!

The hike host is SC's Andy Kaufman. Not that Andy Kaufman!

This trail is flat, paved, and dog-friendly. It's an out & back route along the Ocean cliffs. Expect ocean views, surfers, and a chance to see first-hand the damage from this Winter's relentless parade of storms.

The total journey is about 2-3 hours with a break for snacks/lunch midway. BYO or you can buy food & drinks at Steamer Lane Supply across the street.

Hike Notes:

There's little to no shade on this trail. 
* There are bathroom facilities halfway (at Steamer Lane Supply). 
* There is ample, free street parking
* Well-behaved, leashed dogs are allowed.

After the hike, we'll get together for an after-hike beer at a local brewery with a nice outdoor area where we can hang out and keep the conversation flowing.

No agenda aside from bringing social and inquisitive innovators together in the air!
