Octogenarian Trips are for CMC members who are 80+ years old and need or want trips with a slower pace, shorter mileage, less elevation gain, and more frequent stops than typical CMC Easy A hikes. We also typically include a social brunch after the hike.

Non-Octogenarians are welcome to join. Just be aware we will have a very casual pace


From the Davis Ponds Trailhead, hike north then west to loop the Davis Ponds, then north on Davis Ponds Loop Trail to Chase Meadows to Staunton Ranch to Dines Meadow and return to the VC.

We will pause on trail for a mid-morning snack before returning to the Trailhead.

Social engagement is an important part of Octo Hikes. Following our hike, we will stop in Aspen Grove for a social lunch at Los 3 Garcias. If you don't want social engagement, please don't carpool with someone who does.  

The hike should be completed around 12:00. With a social stop in Aspen Grove for lunch, we should be back at our meeting place by 2:30 p.m.
