Back by popular demand: hike the Ho Chi Minh trail down to Black's Beach.
AIGA Members: Free
Not for the faint of heart! We’ll be crawling down steep sand steps, walking a plank and holding on to a rope to get to the beach. Once there, the view and the easy walk to the end make it worth while. Bring snacks or a beach picnic. If you feel like taking a dip in the Pacific, dress accordingly (although there is a tradition at Black's Beach of NOT dressing — so be warned).

When: Saturday, June 30, 8:00 a.m.
Distance: 2.5 miles (2 hours)
