Garrapata State Park, 4/3/16

4.5 mile hike over two hikes.
Parked on the turnout opposite the coast side.
Start time: 8:51am.  End time: 1:15pm.
Sidenote: On the way home, we stopped in Gilory for some garlic ice cream.  Tasted like eating chocolate ice cream after eating some garlic pasta.

1.5 miles, Sobranes Point Trail.  Hiked along the coast for a short ways.  We had intended on doing the loop, but because of the narrow trails and abundance of poison oak, we opted to turn around.
Saw a few bunnies and flowers though.
Indian Paintbrush
blue blossom ceanothus (California lilac)
Poison Oak, and lots of it!

3 miles; Sobranes Canyon Trail.  Opted to do the less strenuous portion of this loop, and only did an out and back on the Sobranes Canyon Trail.  Still quite a bit of poison oak, but the trails were slightly wider (not by much though).  There were quite a few people, so it seemed like at least every 5 minutes somebody had to move aside.  First portion of the trail had lots of cacti.  There were a few stream crossings too.
