Participant Program Fee is $10. No Fee for Volunteers. Sign Up Deadline is May 1st.
Please note that if we don’t have any volunteer support I will change this to another outing.
We will begin our outing at the visitor center, to absorb the history of the various cultures that mingled in this settlement—Russian, Alaskan, and native and mixed-heritage Californian. The asphalt trail to the fort compound begins at the visitor center. You can start from the front of the visitor center, follow the path to your right and wind downhill through the forest behind the building; or start from the back door and take the ramp to the right off the patio, onto a path that soon joins the trail. You travel down a gentle slope through the forest and cross a wooden bridge, then emerge in a meadow with the fort spread out before you. The trail is wide and mostly level, though bumpy and cracked in places; rustic wood and low stone fences run along part of the route on the ocean side.
