New Year’s Day Hike 2022
January 1 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
The year 2022 starts with an unusually low tide of -1.8 at 3:00 pm on January 1. This is a great opportunity to head to your favorite Gaviota beach and witness the splendor of the amazing places we seek to protect. So far, the weather forecast is encouraging. The sun sets just about at 5:00 pm.
Some of you may have read the blog that GCC is leading a guided hike from Gaviota State Beach on January 1. Due to the fast-moving invasion of the omicron Covid virus strain, we are canceling the guided hike. There are still a group of individuals who intend to meet at 1:30 pm and be back by around 4:00. It is unusual to be able to get to Hollister Ranch from Gaviota State Beach. December 31 (New Year’s Eve) will offer a -1.3 tide at 2:12 if that is more convenient for you. Invite a friend and get out there for this unusual tidal event. Just be sure to turn back by 3:00 pm so you don’t get caught by the rising tide and darkness.
AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A GCC HIKE AND IS NOT LED BY GCC GUIDES
Love and protect Gaviota in 2022 and forever!
Day use parking at Gaviota State Park is $10.
Good Gaviota Beaches to visit on this low tide day include:
