Palm Springs Trip - November 16, 2018 - Spots still availabe as of June 28
Back by popular demand, the PC Hiking Club is offering a four-day trip to Palm Desert/Palm Springs, California, on November 13-16, 2018. Members who participated in the Club trips there in 2013 and 2014 will tell you that it is a wonderful area to hike. Hikes will be planned for Nov 14-16th that will leave the hotel first thing in the morning. For the non-hikers, there are lots of interesting things to see and do.
Vicki Carter will be coordinating the trip (Thank you Vicki!). Please let her know at Vicki.email@example.com to sign up for this trip, whether you are a D, C, C+, B hiker or non-hiker and your willingness to help with coordinating hikes, with the social gatherings or the non-hiking activities.
Club requirements for the Fall trip are a total of 10 hikes at the level you intend to hike from the beginning of the 2017-2018 hiking season but three of these hikes must be in the month (extended to October 8th for this trip) immediately prior to trip departure.
The accommodation has been arranged with Homewood Suites in La Quinta, CA (close to Palm Desert). Club members were very pleased with this hotel when we stayed there in 2014 and it has since been renovated. A studio room with one king bed is $109/night and a one-bedroom suite with two queen beds is $129. Taxes of 14.2% are extra. The same special rate will apply for our group 3 days prior and 3 days after November 13-16 if anyone wishes to extend their stay. You can make reservations by calling Homewood Suites in La Quinta directly at 760-391-4600 and providing the Pebblecreek Hiking Club code PEB.
The hotel suites are spacious and include a kitchen and a pull-out sofa bed in the living area in addition to a king bed or queen beds (one-bedroom suite only). Parking and high-speed wifi are free.. As a perk, the hotel offers a complimentary evening social in addition to a hot breakfast.
