CA>NorCal>Boggs Mt.>Hangout May 10-12
Return to Boggs!
Boggs Mountain State Demonstration Forest, in Lake County, not too far from Clear Lake.
This is a drive up and dump your stuff kind of event.
I have reserved Ridge group camp for the nights of Friday May 10th and Saturday May 11. We would be leaving on Sunday.
I know this is Mother's Day weekend, but surely you can come out on Friday anyway.
Ridge campsite has a pit toilet and most important, lots of lovely pines with little underbrush. Made for hammocks.
And a fire pit.
We must bring in all the water we'll want.

Count Me In
Count Me In! Our 2nd Annual Boggs Hang.
This site really does have it all. Drive in, unload, tables and best of all, lots of great hanging trees. It has a large fire pit and dogs are welcome. (They do have a leash law, so keep that in mind)
There's a variety of hiking trails from easy to kick your butt from the Ridge Campsite.
A 20 minute drive & you're at Harbin Hot Springs. You can get a 6 hr pass for $30.00. (I need to check on the prices.)
Take a look at the 1st Boggs Hang here. https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...ighlight=Boggs
Let me know if I can help as I live in the area.
Unfortunately I will be at Tassajara Hot Springs in Big Sur that weekend. Sorry to miss out on this one.
We'll miss ya Meld. You had all the great gear. Have a great time, and hope to see ya on the next one.

Hello from Truckee. I'm still working on my first hang. If I get my act together, I may shoot down the hill for this event.
This sounds like a lot of fun. Im in Livermore and pretty new to hammocking, this seems great! I work on Fridays and Saturdays but with plenty of notice, i should be able to get those days off! Great!!

Boggs is a blast. I live 15mins, so I feel guilty. It's one of the best little secrets around this area. I've been going there for 6 yrs, and I'm amazed how few people know about it. I've done thousands of miles of hiking, and the trails at Boggs offer a great variety if you want to do some hiking, or even bring your mountain bike.
