HIKE-Windy Hill OSP

NO HOST HIKE-AN EVENT ORGANIZER WILL NOT BE ATTENDING.

There are two Windy Hill parking areas on Skyline. We will meet at the one that has a couple of picnic tables and bathrooms (not so nice ones).

Distance:  8 Miles

Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult (Long moderate incline)

Elevation Change:  1400ft.

Time:  4 to 4 1/2 Hours (Hike) If you don lunch afterwards, add another hour.

Mostly covered. Usually cool year round.

Dogs are welcome.

This is a beautiful hike. I often say the trail reminds me of a scene out of Robin Hood inside the Sherwood Forest. Even in the summer, it can get socked in by the fog and be cool, so be prepared and bring an extra light layer just in case. This loop is a canyon hike, so we will be traveling down for the first half and back up for the second. Not to worry...the incline is gradual and there are a lot of switch backs.

We'll start out on the Anniversary trial for .6 miles. At the Lost Hills / Hamms Gulch junction we'll take a left down the Hamms Gulch Trail for 2.3 miles. This is the steepest part of the trail, and we'll be heading down. From there we will take a right on the Eagle Trail for .6 miles while we head over to the Razor Back Trail. This is where the uphill begins (remember it's gradual). We will travel 2.3 miles on the Razor Back Trail until we come to the Lost Trail. We'll take the Lost Trail the last 1.7 miles were we run back into the Anniversary Trail and go the last .6 miles back to the parking lot. Piece of Cake.

We'll stop at Alice's on Skyline Blvd for lunch afterwards.

Please remember to bring plenty of water and snacks to munch on along the way.

Please do not sign up to hold a spot. Only RSVP if you are planning to attend. Thank you!

    Great hike, great company. A little chilly, but the wind made for some spectacular views.

    Great Hike! Nice small group. Thanks to Bryan and Max for being our fearless leaders. The Sierra Nevada at Alice's Restaurant helped me forget about any aches and pains I developed after our 9 mile hike. Hope you are feeling better Kimberly.

    I sent an email out to everyone, but just in case you didn't see it...I'm not going to be able to attend tomorrow. Not feeling well. I'll leave the hike posted for those of you who would still like to go. If going, please post a comment stating that you will be there and waiting for others. If you will not be going, please change your RSVP to not attending so that other will not wait for you. So sorry! I'll schedule again when I'm feeling better. PLEASE BE AWARE - THIS WILL BE A NO-HOST HIKE, and organizer will not be there to meet, greet, or lead this event.

    Unfortunately I have been dealing with some back issues this week and sciatica, and I think that this type of hike is going to aggravate the problem so am going to have to miss :-( another time... and have fun.

    Houston Jones is playing at the San Gregorio Store from 2pm - 5pm for those die hards who can stay awake after lunch at Alice's. I'm hoping that I'll still be on my feet after the hike, its been awhile.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
